David Bowie: Among The Mexican Masters
Mexican photographer Fernando Aceves’ exclusive images of the late, legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie taken during Bowie’s historic 1997 tour to Mexico City will be on exhibition for the first time ever at Forest Lawn Museum from January 27, 2017 through July 1, 2017, during a year of cultural exchange between Los Angeles and Mexico City.
David Bowie: Among the Mexican Masters marks Aceves’ first museum exhibition and the world launch of this new, traveling exhibition. The 27 color images in this unique archive captured intimate moments between the legendary musician and the cultural heritage of Mexico made during Bowie’s only visit to Mexico City 20 years ago. It was during that visit that Aceves was commissioned to accompany the British rock star on a rich cultural and art tour through the city, documenting at the musician’s request visits to appreciate some of the most famous landmarks that included the works of muralists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Jose Clemente Orozco, the Frida Kahlo Museum, the pyramids of Teotihuacan, and other historic sites.
