The many faces and inspirations of English music legend David Bowie are getting a permanent home in London.
Britain’s Victoria & Albert Museum has acquired Bowie’s archive of more than 80,000 items as a gift from the late musician’s estate.
The trove of costumes, musical instruments, letters, lyrics, photos and more will be opened to the public at a new arts centre dedicated to the pop icon who many say was ahead of his time.
The David Bowie Centre for the Study of Performing Arts is due to open in 2025 in east London’s Olympic Park.
Bowie died of cancer in 2016 at the age of 69.
