It seems that David Bowie was a sophisticated collector of art. No surprise, really. I was surprised, though, to learn that he had, among other things, an extensive collection of museum quality furniture. Would you like to see it? Well, you can if you’re in Central Florida right about now!
The Modernism Museum in Mt.Dora FL is the place.

SPACE ODDITIES: BOWIE | SOTTSASS | MEMPHIS
THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION INCLUDING OBJECTS FROM THE ESTATE OF DAVID BOWIE
David Bowie, mourned by the world on his passing in 2016, was one of the most radical figures in recent popular culture. Memphis, founded under the leadership of Ettore Sottsass in Milan in 1981, was the most radical of all design groups. This exhibition brings them together. Bowie built up an extensive body of Memphis work over the years – iconic works by Sottsass and his colleagues, including Michele DeLucchi, Nathalie DuPasquier, Shiro Kuramata, and Martine Bedin. This exhibition, the largest gathering of Memphis objects ever presented in an American museum, includes over 75 examples, many from Bowie’s private collection. It is a fabulous opportunity to see Memphis as it should be seen – in profusion – and to experience the private world of a great pop visionary.
