America—as seen by Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan, Manhattan Bridge, Downtown New York (2015). Halcyon Gallery, London

The musician and elusive Nobel prizewinner, Bob Dylan, presents his latest works (of art) at the Halcyon Gallery in London in the exhibition The Beaten Path, which opens 5 November (until 11 December). Dylan depicts the highways and byways of smalltown America, a land of railroads, skyscrapers and bridges harking back to the 1950s. The musician writes in the catalogue preface: “The common theme of these works, having something to do with the American landscape, [is] how you see it while crisscrossing the land and seeing it for what it’s worth. Staying out of the mainstream and traveling the back roads, freeborn style.” Paul Green, the gallery president, told Associated Press that he hopes Dylan will pop in to see his own show: “We don’t know whether he will come. We hope he will. He’s been deeply involved in every aspect of this exhibition.”
