David Bowie will soon have a massive presence at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington, London.

The museum shared via social media, “We are thrilled to announce that the exceptional archive of legend @DavidBowieReal is coming to the V&A! Spanning 80,000 items across his 60 year career, you can explore Bowie’s life’s work in ways never possible before at @vam_east Storehouse from 2025 #DavidBowieArchive.”


The Associated Press notes the items will be on display for the public at the new David Bowie Center for the Study of Performing Arts.

V&A senior curator Kate Bailey said in a statement, “Bowie’s a polymath, he’s multifaceted. He was inspired by all genres and disciplines.”

She added, “He’s an artist who was working really in 360 — drawing from literature, but also drawing from art history … (and) the places that he’d been to.”
