CHICAGO (AP) — An exhibition on the career of David Bowie will make its only U.S. stop at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art next year.

“David Bowie is” is at London’s V&A Museum until Sunday. The V&A Museum curated the exhibit and says it has been staying open until 10 p.m. to meet demand. Attendance has been about 300,000.

The exhibition next goes to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Museum of Image and Sound in Sao Paulo before coming to Chicago from September 2014 to January 2015. Later exhibitions will be in Paris and the Netherlands.

“David Bowie is” is the first international retrospective of the musician’s five-decade career. It includes more than 300 items, including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, album artwork, set designs and performance materials.
