Bob Dylan's drawings to go on display in Chemnitz (old thread)

Dylan’s drawings to go on display – alongside Picasso’s

 

 

He has spanned five decades as one of the world’s best-loved singer-songwriters, and he’s still going strong. But as if that wasn’t enough, Bob Dylan, the musician, poet, and living legend, has confirmed that he is further extending his record as the ultimate artist, by putting some of his own pictures on display. It emerged last night that Dylan has produced more than 200 sketches and watercolours over the years, which will go on show in October at the Kunstsammlungen art museum in Chemnitz, Germany. The collection, entitled The Drawn Blank Series, will hang in an exhibition alongside works by various European masters, including Picasso.

The show in Chemnitz, south of Berlin, is to open on Oct. 28 and run through Feb. 3.

Gotta Love Bob...

 

 

But news of the impending exhibition shows that times have changed for Dylan, too. He added: “Great paintings shouldn’t be in museums. Have you ever been in a museum? Museums are cemeteries… You can’t see great paintings. You pay half a million and hang one in your house and one guest sees it. That’s not art. That’s a shame, a crime. Music is the only thing that’s in tune with what’s happening.
