Bob Dylan - The Asia Series


American, b. 1941

Award in 2001. In addition to winning eleven Grammy Awards, he has achieved six entries in the Grammy Hall of Fame, which honours recordings of ‘qualitative or historical significance’ at least 25 years old. Dylan dates the origins of his work as a visual artist to the early 1960s. The public first saw his artwork on the cover of the album, Music From Big Pink by The Band in 1968 and on his now iconic Self Portrait album cover of 1970. A book of 92 drawings titled Drawn Blank followed in 1994, and exhibitions of reworked versions of these images were mounted at the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz in Germany in 2007 and the following year at Halcyon Gallery in London. The Bob Dylan on Canvas exhibition at Halcyon Gallery marked a new phase of the artist’s career with his first- ever paintings in acrylics. As this fresh medium opened up to Dylan during an intensive burst of artistic activity, he completed a significant new group of some 50 paintings, The Brazil Series . In the subsequent exhibition at Copenhagen’s Statens Museum for Kunst from September 2010 to April 2011, visitors saw how Dylan had developed preliminary studies executed on tour in Brazil into richly coloured depictions of countryside, cityscape and various characters including musicians, card players and troublemakers. A further artistic landmark for Dylan was his first New York show in autumn 2011, when The Asia Series, which reflected on his time spent in China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea, was exhibited. During 2012, Dylan released his thirty-sixth studio album, Tempest , and was awarded America’s highest civilian

Bob Dylan is one of the world’s most influential and groundbreaking artists. In the decades since he first burst into the public’s consciousness from New York City’s Greenwich Village folk music scene in the early 1960s, Bob Dylan has sold more than 125 million records and amassed a singular body of work that includes some of the greatest and most popular songs the world has ever known. He continues to traverse the globe each year, performing more than 100 concerts annually in front of audiences who embrace his new material with the same passion as his classic output. During the last six decades he has released more than 50 albums and written in excess of 600 songs, some of the most famous being ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’, ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’’ and ‘Like A Rolling Stone’. His songs have been covered more than 6,000 times by artists as diverse as Duke Ellington, Jimi Hendrix, Guns N’ Roses, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Marley, Pearl Jam, Neil Young, Adele and U2. Dylan’s contributions to worldwide culture have been recognised and honoured with many awards. He received an honorary doctorate of music from Princeton University, New Jersey, in 1970 and another from the University of St Andrews, Scotland, in 2004. President Clinton presented him with a Kennedy Center Honor at the White House in 1997, recognising the excellence of his contribution to American culture. Dylan’s song ‘Things Have Changed’ from the film Wonder Boys (2000) won him an Academy

Bob Dylan (b. 1941) has drawn and painted whilst on tour for many years, drawing inspiration from the people and places he has encountered on the road. Dylan is a keen observer of life, finding richness in the everyday as he sees it, and depicting the world without great embellishment or exaggeration. Stylistically, his art is driven by a constant desire for innovation and discovery, calling upon a range of influences from European modernism to American documentary photography. Dylan’s ability to draw from array of sources, and yet remain remarkably authentic, is a hallmark of his visual art and music alike. As American author Bill Flanagan writes, ‘Dylan remains restlessly creative, going down the road with his eyes wide open’. The Asia Series , a visual reflection on Bob Dylan’s travels in Japan, China, Vietnam, and Korea, comprises people, interiors, architecture and landscapes. The series draws upon a variety of source material, from observational sketches to archival film and photography. Presenting his audience with suggestive, open-ended scenes, Dylan leaves the viewer to continue their own narrative beyond the confines of the artwork. Executed in muted, evocative colours, Dylan’s painting follows the order of natural reality; in the artist’s words, ‘the idea is to keep everything where it should be’. The 2021 release of The Asia Series is timely, coinciding with the tour of Dylan’s first major museum retrospective across Asia. Retrospectrum spans five decades of Dylan’s artistic career and features more than 250 paintings and drawings, including the original acrylics on canvas from The Asia Series , created in 2009–2010. The exhibition

through the back streets, alleys and country roads. Reminiscing about a landscape unpolluted by the ephemera of pop culture, fleeting snapshots of America emerge from the works. Mondo Scripto first opened at Halcyon Gallery in October 2018. The exhibition presented a selection of Bob Dylan’s most iconic songs, handwritten in pen on paper and accompanied by a corresponding drawing in graphite. As Tom Piazza, a celebrated novelist and writer on American music, wrote in the introduction to the exhibition catalogue, “Dylan’s restlessly creative mind is never wholly satisfied, and those familiar with these songs will find surprise at many a new turn of phrase. The unexpected couplings of these works and images offer a surprisingly intimate door into each song, adding dimension, delight and insight into the artist’s relation to his own work”. In 2019 a landmark retrospective exhibition, Retrospectrum , featuring Dylan’s artistic output to date opened at MAM Shanghai, before beginning a tour that will cover Asia, Europe and the USA. The exhibition, which later opened in Beijing at Today Art Museum in July 2020 and in Shenzhen at the Jupiter Art Museum in December 2020, re-examines The Drawn Blank Series , The New Orleans Series , The Asia Series , Mood Swings , The Beaten Path and works from Mondo Scripto .

unites seven series of Dylan’s visual art, along with archival material and brand-new paintings. Retrospectrum explores the sheer breadth of Dylan’s achievement and his monumental impact on the world as a musician, poet and artist. Following its opening at Modern Art Museum, Shanghai, in September 2019, the exhibition attracted over 100,000 visitors in the opening three months, making it the most visited art exhibition in Shanghai that year. Retrospectrum then travelled to the Today Art Museum in Beijing before recently opening at the Jupiter Museum of Art in Shenzhen, where it will remain until March 2021. The ongoing success of Retrospectrum is testament to Dylan’s worldwide acclaim.

In February 2013 an exhibition of 23 new works on canvas, The New Orleans Series , opened at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. In August 2013, Bob Dylan: Face Value opened at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The exhibition later toured to Copenhagen’s Museum of National History in 2014, the Butler Museum in Youngstown, Ohio in 2015, to Kent State University Museum, Ohio, and Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz in 2016. Mood Swings , a major exhibition of new work by Dylan, opened at Halcyon Gallery in November 2013. Heralding the first public showing of the artist’s iron works – seven gates created from vintage iron and other metal parts – the sculptures reveal the artist’s lifelong fascination with welding and metalwork. The exhibition also included Side Tracks, a series of over 300 uniquely hand-embellished prints signed by the artist, in which he revisits the evocative image Train Tracks from The Drawn Blank Series. In October 2016 Dylan became the first singer-songwriter to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, “For having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” The following month, Dylan’s major exhibition The Beaten Path opened at Halcyon Gallery. The exhibition featured a collection of drawings, watercolours and acrylic works on canvas, depicting the artist’s view of American landscapes and urban scenes. The Beaten Path invites the viewer to accompany Dylan on his travels as he criss-crosses the United States

A live album documenting this tour, ‘Before the Flood’, was released. 1975 From autumn 1975 until spring 1976, Dylan toured North America with the ‘Rolling Thunder Revue’, which included a changing entourage of artists such as the poet Allen Ginsberg, and singers Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez.

poetic nature. 1965 Dylan released ‘Bringing It All Back Home’, which included the use of electric instruments and signified his departure from folk music towards rock and roll. In April, Dylan began a tour of Britain and the hysteria surrounding him was captured in the film documentary, ‘Don’t Look Back’ (1965), directed by the filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker. Dylan’s single ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ was released on 20th July and became his first major hit. Five days later he performed at the Newport Folk Festival, backed by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, where he showcased his new electric sound and received a mixed response from the audience. In September, Dylan began touring backed by the Hawks – who later became known as The Band. 1966 In April, Dylan began a tour of Australia and Europe, which culminated in a raucous and notorious confrontation between the singer and fans during a concert at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in Britain. On 29th July near Woodstock, New York, Dylan crashed his motorcycle. Although the extent of his injuries was not known, he disappeared from public view for many months. He would not tour again for eight years. 1967 In spring, The Band moved to Woodstock to be closer to Dylan and he recorded with them in the basement of their house. The tracks produced were widely bootlegged and only legitimately released in 1975 as ‘The Basement Tapes’. 1968 On 20th January, Dylan made his first live appearance, following the accident, with The Band at a memorial concert for Woody Guthrie in New York City. 1969 In May, Dylan appeared on the first episode of Johnny Cash’s new television show, singing several songs as duets with Cash.

Bob Dylan was born in Duluth, Minnesota on 24th May 1941. He grew up in the mining town of Hibbing and played in a number of rock and roll bands as a high school student. In 1959 he enrolled at the University of Minneapolis but left after his freshman year. The Sixties 1961 In January, Dylan moved to New York City where he visited his idol Woody Guthrie in hospital and performed in the folk clubs of Greenwich Village. Following a performance at New York’s Gerde’s Folk City in September, Dylan received public recognition through a review by critic Robert Shelton in The New York Times. Dylan’s talents were brought to the attention of A&R producer John Hammond and in October he signed a contract with Columbia Records. 1962 In March, Dylan released his first album, ‘Bob Dylan’. 1963 Dylan’s second album, ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’, including songs like ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ and ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’ helped establish him as a singer and songwriter. He soon became an important figure in the national folk movement. ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ was released by Peter, Paul and Mary and reached number two in the American music charts in July. In the same month, Dylan performed at the Newport Folk Festival. It was also during 1963 that Dylan became prominent in the civil rights movement, singing at protest rallies with Joan Baez. On 28th August he sang at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the civil rights rally at which Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. 1964 Dylan felt increasingly constrained by the folk and protest movement and his fourth album, ‘Another Side of Bob Dylan’, released in August 1964, showed a move away from protest songs to ones of a more personal and

In 1987 he toured with backing from the Grateful Dead, which led to the album ‘Dylan & the Dead’ (1989). Dylan also starred in the movie ‘Hearts of Fire’ (1987) directed by Richard Marquand. 1988 In January, Dylan was inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’, with an induction speech by Bruce Springsteen.

The album was a critical and popular success around the world entering the charts in the top ten in over nineteen countries. As Andy Gill, in the Independent wrote, the recordings “have a lingering, languid charm, which… help to liberate the material from the rusting manacles of big-band and cabaret mannerisms.” A few days later, Bob Dylan was honoured as the 25th MusiCares Person of the Year at a fundraiser in Los Angeles. The event was the most successful fundraiser in MusiCares history. 2016 From January until March, Face Value, a selection of twelve large portraits, was exhibited at Kent State University Museum, Kent, Ohio, USA.
