From iconic imagery to creative artistry, the music, personality and influence of David Bowie has had a profound influence on many Arts Project Australia artists. Whether it’s Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, or simply Bowie, the musician and singer still continues to cultivate admiration and respect. To pay tribute to the enigmatic performer and cultural icon, We Could Be Heroes brings together a series of Bowie portraits by Arts Project artists. Surveying the connections between celebrity and fandom, the show explores how superstars continue to have inspiring meaning in our day-to-day lives.
Curated by Arts Project studio artist Paul Hodges, the exhibition remembers and celebrates Bowie’s vivid music, his mesmerising style, and his ongoing influence.
