Quote:
The rooms of the Reserve will host from February 4th the works of Bob Dylan, for the first time exhibited in a public space Italian.
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:

The press release of the municipality of Milan states that it is a "series of paintings, titled New Orleans, made by Dylan with an almost movie-like perspective, creating an almost monochromatic feeling"

Thanks kindly for the translation, andrea! I'm looking forward to that one.

Oh come on.... odds are better he stole his own images of New Orleans than that he's been to Brazilian slums or 1800s Indochina. :wink:

Perhaps this series will include Dylan's 2011 painting Horn Player, which is based on a 1963 Leonard Freed photo of New Orleans trumpeter De De Pierce.

Since Leonard died in 2006, I wonder what his beneficiaries thought of this.
If it were me, I would be honored.

Barely breathing, almost comatose

Hang each night in rapture......

While I don't recall where they first came from, I remember there was another painting coming out at the same time that wasn't part of any known published collection, called Ukranian Wall.

Undoubtedly he plagairized the works... the fellow has no originality whatsoever. I'll bet he even stole his cowboy suits...

On a more serious (and regretable) note... I had business in New Orleans later this month and I asked my colleague to handle it as I was struggling to fit everything into the schedule. He's no Dylan fan so its doubtful I can get him to go in my place... :(

I think you're right about this Barefoot. It's like climbing Mt. Everest.... "Why do people climb it"? "Cause it's there". :roll:

According to the few scattered google translated reports I saw, yes it is.

I wish they'd release more information already, I'm itching to book a trip....

Okay, as far as I can tell from the article below, a press conference on Monday, 14 January, might reveal further details about this show.

Quote:
For the first time in Italy, Bob Dylan recently honored exposure "360 sound: the Columbia Records Story" at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, exhibiting a series of paintings, an exhibition entitled New Orleans. Will be offered 20 images taken Minstrel in Duluth.

The images date back to the 60 ', produced by Dylan following a course of visual art. The paintings offered are made by Dylan with a cinematic atmosphere created in a nearly monochromatic.

Surely the rooms of the '"apartment Reserve of the Royal Palace," will be the ideal to enclose the works of one of the greatest performers of all time U.S..

A first for all Dylan fans and for those who are interested in finding out more than the singing talent even further facets of a historical artist in the music world, which is confirmed through this show a 360 degree artist, always ready to experiment with in his passion for painting and art.

The world of rock and art can combine. The Exhibition of Bob Dylan is the proof.


The above is Google translated from http://www.aperitivoamilano.it/eventi/mostra-di-bob-dylan-a-milano-dal-4-febbraio-2013-al-palazzo-reale/ .

The part in red is doubtful, to say the least, if they mean what I think they mean - though it would be fantastic to see some of the work Bob did when studying with Raeben.

Hey.......I wonder if it could be some of the art we see in that photograph of him in his studio in the eighties? I'm on my phone, or I would post the image. They certainly were monochromatic.

They say these new ones will be paintings - most in the studio photos are drawings. Also, the New Orleans connection would need explaining. But I agree, these would be good to see exhibited as well.
