St. Vincent Discusses David Bowie at Exhibit In Chicago
On Sept. 23, 2014, ‘David Bowie Is’ -- an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago -- debuted, featuring memorabilia and memories from throughout David Bowie’s career. To celebrate the exhibit coming to an end (yesterday, Jan. 4, was its final day), the MCA invited St. Vincent to chat about Bowie’s influence on her own work and life.
Taking place on Saturday Jan. 3, St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) spent the evening talking with Jessica Hopper (a Chicago-based writer) about her early beginnings as a rock star and how Bowie has affected her.
From discussing who gave her the template for how a rock star is supposed to act to how rockers should look on stage -- and joking about nose breathing into the microphones -- the conversation is fascinating.
