This exhibition marks Dylan’s life-long journey of creating visual art, emphasizing themes of personal journies and geographies—both inner and exterior.

Bob Dylan is an iconic figure whose talents and work span mediums and disciplines and has maintained a devoted practice of visual art for many decades. Retrospectrum is the first European monographic exhibition to explore Dylan’s expansive visual oeuvre.

The multifaceted nature of Dylan is explored through a wide range of artworks, ranging from oil paintings, acrylics, watercolours, ink drawings, pastel and charcoal, and a series of iron sculptures. Through eight thematically-divided sections – Early Works, The Beaten Path, Mondo Scripto, Revisionist, Drawn Blank, New Orleans, Deep Focus and IronworksRetrospectrum offers the opportunity to retrace Dylan’s lived experience in the field of visual.

The works selected for the Rome exhibition display a visual diary documenting the transformation of the sources and styles that have inspired and influenced Dylan over the years. Through continuous new encounters with ever-changing environments and people, his work constantly evolves in exciting ways, reflecting the sensibility of a genuinely artistic voice.
