Bob Dylan's Retrospectrum

This is what Dylan said about the exhibition. "It is very gratifying to know that my visual works will be exhibited at the Maxxi, in Rome: a truly special museum in one of the most beautiful and inspiring cities in the world. This exhibition aims to offer different points of view, which examine the human condition and explore those mysteries of life that continue to perplex us. It is very different from mine music, of course, but it has the same intent "
