Madonna exhibition to launch in London
The largest ever display of Madonna memorabilia and costumes is due to be exhibited in London next spring.
Entitled Simply Madonna: Materials of the Girl, the exhibition will featuring 300 pieces from throughout the singer’s 25-year career, and will showcase costumes and clothing.
Many of these will be instantly recognisable to fans, and will include the strapless pink gown from her Material Girl video, costumes from movie Evita, a black satin bustier from the Open Your Heart video, and the wedding dress from her Like a Virgin tour.
Described by a spokesperson for the gallery as ‘a treasure trove,’ the exhibition will be a must-see for fans of the Material Girl.
Curator Ted Owen commented, ‘This is an unprecedented collection of Madonna memorabilia, that represents every stage of her glittering career.
He added, ‘These are museum-quality pieces – but they will be presented in-keeping with the glamour and sense of theatre that the queen of pop has made her trademark – and Madonna fans should be very excited indeed.’
The exhibition will open on 21 February 2009, and will run until 22 March, at East London’s Old Truman Brewery.
