The gentleman in the Bondage Magazine painting is John Tolos, The Golden Greek. In the uncropped photo it's Fred Blassie throwing the punch.

From the front page news:

While I agree that exhibits of "celebrity art" are always suspect, it is not as though the artist in this instance were the empty headed star of a reality show. For over fifty years, Bob Dylan has been a major force in American culture. There can be no doubt today of either his genius or his artistry. If at this point Dylan wishes to express himself in any media, his work most definitely deserves a forum at a major venue.

And regarding the Asia series:

Charges of plagiarism have also surfaced just as they did at the artist's prior show. This is an especially sensitive point for the Gagosian in light of the recent Richard Prince lawsuit in which it was involved. I should note that the gallery attendant with whom I spoke assured me that Dylan had received permission from the original photographers to use the images shown in his work.

Reminds me of 'brown rice, sea weed and a dirty hot dog." That's macrobiotic.

Today's ER front page links to amazon for the Revisionist Art catalogue / book, to be published 1 February 2013. I do hope this will contain the rumored written contributions from Bob, however it doesn't yet say so on the site.

Incredible how bad the work is. Might be amusing to hear how he defends doing something this mediocre and gross.

So I pre-ordered that book and amazon's telling me they're going to mail it out only in March.... :?

Bob's probably going to revise his commentary! :P

Thanks for pointing that out-I missed it on the front page and was hoping for a catalog. Does anyone know or think (guess) that it will also be on the US Amazon site at some point?

Given that the exhibition took place in the US, I'd be surprised if it wasn't sold either via amazon.com or Gagosian Gallery web shop, or both. In the UK, ISIS magazine will also stock it.

I couldn't find it on Amazon.com. 'Doesn't mean it's not there, it just means I couldn't find it. I'll check the Gallery web shop. Thanks for the head's up!

What I was trying to say was that I think the catalogue will show up on one of those sites eventually, it wasn't there yet last time I checked.

Just ordered from Amazon (U.S.) for $63. That's 37% off the cover price ($100). A bit high for a 156 page hardcover, but I love this series. Not something to hang on a wall, but great as a book. It's Dylan doing NATIONAL LAMPOON. I really hope AMAZON comes through on this.

Book Description
Release date: February 22, 2013 | ISBN-10: 1419709798 | ISBN-13: 978-1419709791
In Revisionist Art, Bob Dylan offers silkscreened covers of popular magazines from the last half century that somehow escaped history’s notice. As Luc Sante says in his introduction to this collection, they seem to emanate, “from a world just slightly removed from ours--a world a bit more honest about its corruption, its chronic horniness, its sweat, its body odor.” Art critic B. Clavery provides a history of Revisionist Art, from cave drawings, to Gutenberg, to Duchamp, Picasso, and Warhol. The book also features vivid commentaries on the work, (re)acquainting the reader with such colorful historical figures as the Depression-era politician Cameron Chambers, whose mustache became an icon in the gay underworld, and Gemma Burton, a San Francisco trial attorney who used all of her assets in the courtroom. According to these works, history is not quite what we think it is.

About the Author
B. Clavery is the editor of Sluggo: A Magazine of the Transformative Arts.

The price is dropping on that thing.... it was 80 € when I ordered, now it's 56 € on amazon.de. He probably didn't sell a whole lot of the Asia books. :P

I was just thinking how great it would be if Dylan's notes were composed in the same way the silkscreens are. What I mean is he would find pieces of text in the magazines and piece them together in keeping with the revisionist idea. Of course there isn't much chance of that happening.
