Retrospectrum: Bob Dylan

On View:
Tuesday, November 30, 2021 — Sunday, April 17, 2022


Retrospectrum is the most expansive and in-depth exhibition of Bob Dylan's artwork ever staged in the United States. Spanning six decades, Retrospectrum features over 180 paintings, drawings, ironwork, and ephemera, showcasing the development and range of Dylan's visual practice, in tandem with that of his musical and literary canon. 
Retrospectrum, organized by Shai Baitel, the artistic director of Modern Art Museum (MAM) Shanghai, positions the Nobel Prize winning multi-faceted artist within his broader body of work, and shines a light on a life-long visual practice that is entirely remarkable in its own right.
