Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series

Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series
COPENHAGEN  •  SMK National Gallery of Denmark  •  Ongoing

The National Gallery of Den-mark's major autumn exhibition sees Bob Dylan presenting large-scale paintings for the first time. Bob Dylan's new series reflects the settings and people he came across in Brazil. Here, we find depictions of everyday scenes in cities and in the country. Wine growers, gypsies, politicians, gamblers, and gangsters. A motley collection of motifs and subject matter that accentuates the artist's fascination with the diver-sity of Brazil. The works appear almost like anthropological records, shorn of any romantic sentiments, preconceptions, or social commentary.

The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series. The book is the first publication to subject Bob Dylan's visual art to serious, art-historical analysis and readings. Preface by Karsten Ohrt, Director. Introduction and main article by Kasper Monrad, Chief Curator. Special article by John Elder-field, former Chief Curator at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
