Bob Dylan's Retrospectrum
BOB DYLAN: RETROSPECTRUM at the MAXXI Museum Rome, the first European city to host the globally-renowned exhibition showcasing more than 100 works, including drawings, paintings, and sculptures.
Bob Dylan: Retrospectrum, a comprehensive collection of visual works by one of the world’s most important cultural figures, opened at Rome’s National Museum of 21st Century Art—MAXXi—on December 16, 2022. Curated by Shai Baitel, the Rome exhibition follows globally-renowned exhibitions at MAM Shanghai, China and the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum in Miami, Florida in the United States. Notably, Rome will be the very first European city to host this exhibition, which has been completely reimagined to interact with Zaha Hadid’s dynamic and futuristic spaces at MAXXI.
More than 100 works will be on display in the exhibition, including paintings, watercolours, ink and graphite drawings, metal sculptures, video material, and archival documents that trace and explore more than 60 years of Dylan’s artistic output.
