One day of mourning David Bowie is not enough. His music and performances are too important to let him go. As such, I’ve downloaded as many GIFs as possible from the animated GIF show Lorna Mills curated for the Art Gallery of Ontario’s 2013 “David Bowie is” exhibition . The exhibition included over 15 artists from countries all around the world.(Rea McNamara discussed her GIFs for the show yesterday.) Some of the GIFs, now, look oddly prescient.
Sadly, we never reviewed the GIF show—it was up for one night only—but we did get to see the traveling exhibition. We weren’t happy with it.
