David Bowie denies co-curator role in V&A exhibit
Reclusive rock star David Bowie made a rare public statement earlier this week to deny reports that he's co-curating a forthcoming exhibition of his costumes at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.
"Contrary to recently published reports
relating to the announcement by the V&A of an upcoming David Bowie
Exhibition, I am not a co-curator and did not participate in any
decisions relating to the exhibition," the 65-year-old wrote. "The David Bowie Archive
gave unprecedented access to the V&A and museum's curators have made
all curatorial and design choices."
He added: "A close friend of mine tells me that I am neither 'devastated,' 'heartbroken' nor 'uncontrollably furious' by this news item.
London's Mirror newspaper reports that Bowie is unhappy with the curarotorial decisions and fears the exhibition will come off as a vanity project.
