Well what it said in the translation you posted, and the translation is to the spot, certainly sounds similar to what is shown on the photo! Now I'm intrigued! Milano, here I come!

Are we going to have an ER meeting for the occasion? Anybody else planning to go?

I'm not like you guys, being completely aware of Bob's timeline, but he spent time in New Orleans (according to Chronicles) during the late eighties, yes?

Yes, they lived there while recording Oh Mercy. He first went in '64 for Mardi Gras.... and these days has Mardi Gras beads strung around his Oscar, on the piano at every show.

So, let's say I hope he'll paint his own impressions this time. :P But even if not, it'll be a good subject for paintings.

Today seems to be Official Bob Dylan Visual Art Day (though we knew there was going to be news re. The New Orleans Series today).

See one of his new paintings plus further information about the exhibition at Milan here:

Thank you JohannaParker for posting the article w/picture. And how lovely that
whether, or not-New Orleans is the background in reality, the essence of it seems to be there. Soaked with the same close atmosphere, dreamy.

on second thought...looked at in a different way, maybe the man in the painting is the same one from Soon After Midnight...If some of the "murder song" theories were right about that song. Because instead of the lady in his arms feeling ravished or dramatic about being carried, she has been done in! and is no longer breathing. :shock: :!: ! And in that case, the expression on the man's face isn't anticipatory, but furtive, like he needs to get rid of the body somehow.

This new speculation is because I just noticed the woman's legs are all over the place, and if she was being carried romantically, it would be more likely she would try to appear as dainty as possible, not all spraddled out.

Or maybe it depicts that the lady has enjoyed one too many glasses of sherry and doesn't even realize she has any legs. Most likely it's that, because Soon After Midnight is sweet, maybe even prayerful, and not menacing, and so, that couldn't be the same man.

However, the scene still has that hazy crazy New Orleans kind of dreaminess to it. Also, if that's a window to the side, he could have rescued her from it and she fainted.

And, are people all quiet in a Dylan Exhibit, or is there a lot of background noise/laughter ? Or is it like this, here, with everyone talking with little earpieces and those microphones on a thin wire going to their mouths while they listen in headphones to someone else explain what they're seeing and how they should feel about it? (Those are alright for a 2nd visit to a museum/gallery. But the first visit should be felt, without editing or input from some other voice while you're trying to feel. And the the 3rd go 'round the same, after hearing someone say on your 2nd visit what the general consensus is about what you're viewing, so you can really know your own opinion by the end of your 3rd time.)

I picture these exhibits hushed, reverent, a lot of hair.

It was relatively quiet at the two shows I saw (Chemnitz / Copenhagen), but well, it's not a rock show. :P

hmm But in a way, it could be considered that, sort of. Kind of an extension of concert/performance, because even though it's a much different form, the creativity/ art is coming from the same source- that kind of thing. :)

It does bring in some different audiences, definitely. That alone rocks.

A series of paintings, entitled New Orleans, proposes twenty pictures taken by Dylan with a cut film, made in an atmosphere almost monochrome.

Not sure from the Google translation whether it's painting, photographs, film or a combination of everything. It will be some sort of art, though. I'm going. :wink:



ooooh, Bob + New Orleans + Milano/ Italy = all I love !!!! But where is it, when does it end, etc ??? I wanna go there !!!!!!!!

One of the paintings could be a composite based on these images:

From the very first article that appeared announcing this exhibition, it was clearly stated the works would be based on photos. There's no scandal coming up on this.

Good find, scott.

Translation of article linked on the front page today - apparently Bob yesterday saw his works as exhibited in Milan.
