Bob Dylan exhibits his works in Provence


The American musician and Nobel Prize for Literature Bob Dylan chose an estate in Provence, Château La Coste, near Aix-en-Provence, for his first permanent installation, “Rail car” (wagon), a monumental work in wrought iron .

“Rail car” presents a wagon installed on rails in the middle of the vineyards, on the Art and Architecture route of this area in the south of France. The visitor can enter this “hollow” wagon and admire the walls where cycles, wrenches, chains or even ladders intertwine.

At the same time, until August 15 and in the same area, the multi-card artist exhibits 24 paintings in an installation entitled “Drawn Blank in Provence” (2008-2013). These canvases arebased on his drawings made (by the artist) during his tours in Europe and America between 1989 and 1991“, specified the center of arts of the castle in a press release.

The exhibition will be presented in the exhibition pavilion designed by Renzo Piano, and the paintings will be presented alongside works by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall. Internationally known as a singer and songwriter, but also a director, actor, DJ and visual artist, Bob Dylan has sold more than 110 million records worldwide.
