BOB DYLAN: RETROSPECTRUM opens 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.

 

“It’s gratifying to learn that my visual works are going to be exhibited at MAXXI in Rome, a truly great museum in one of the world’s most beautiful and inspirational cities. This exhibition is meant to provide perspectives that examine the human condition and explore the mysteries of life that continue to leave us perplexed. It’s very different from my music, of course, but every bit as purposeful in its intent."
Bob Dylan
“This career-spanning exhibition showcases Bob Dylan’s unique approach to visual art and command of painting, drawing, and sculpting. It provides a special opportunity to view Dylan’s creative journey across time and locations, including the steps at Rome’s Piazza di Spagna as captured in the featured work 'When I paint my Masterpiece'."
