  6. Exhibit Opening!

    October 27, 2017, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM @ Modernism Museum Mount Dora

    On October 27, the Modernism Museum in Mount Dora, Florida, will open a new exhibition about the design collection of David Bowie. Entitled Space Oddities: Bowie Sottsass Memphis and shown to the general public for the first time, these designs were created by the Italian supergroup of designers. The exhibit will present a wide range of objects previously in the collection of the superstar performer. Launched in 1981, Memphis was a completely new style statement, and had a huge influence on the look of the decade, from MTV videos to film to fashion. The brash colors, clashing patterns and edgy silhouettes of these objects have come to be synonymous with the 1980s. Visitors to Mount Dora will also be able to enjoy cuisine inspired by the exhibition at the Modernism Museum’s associated restaurant 1921 by Norman Van Aken. For more information about Space Oddities: Bowie Sottsass Memphis, please contact the Modernism Museum at: 352-385-0034.
