The David Bowie exhibition opening in London next year will feature the iconic pop star's Ziggy Stardust jumpsuit amogst its 300 artifacts, it has been confirmed.
Bowie granted curators from the Victoria and Albert museum rare and unique access to his New York based archive, believed to have over 60,000 items in it. The curators have selected 300 of these items, including the world famous jumpsuit.
Elsewhere in the exhibit, which opens in 2013, will be hand written lyric sheets, instruments, sketches, musical scores, diary entries and album artwork.
The 'ground breaking' show will also feature an academic symposium on the singer.
Bowie, however, was forced to explain last week how he is not directly involved in the exhibition beyond granting access to his archive. Writing on Facebook, he stated: "Contrary to recently published reports relating to the announcement by the V&A of an upcoming David Bowie Exhibition, I am not a co-curator and did not participate in any decisions relating to the exhibition."
The David Bowie exhibition will run between March 23 and July 28 and is expected to tour the UK and iternationally afterwards.
