That is the question…

Bob Dylan addresses in an extraordinary and extensive interview about his visual Art. Drawings and Paintings. This might not be about photography but it’s art and it’s BOB at his insightful best.

It is the first interview that Bob Dylan has given about his engagement with visual art. Very interesting interview.

“What’s in or not in changes all the time, doesn’t it? Some artists are always in—Picasso, Rembrandt, Dickens, Son House, Keith Richards. There’s nothing the authoritarian order can do about that. If you were never in, you were never out.

People are only out once they’ve been in. We never hear of the ones that are truly out. They’re so out, they’re in. It’s all relative, isn’t it? I’ve always been more of a traditionalist and followed my own star—to thine own self be true and all that.

What’s in or not in is mostly media-manipulated for commercial reasons anyway. You have to believe in what you do and stay dedicated. It’s easy to get sucked in to what others think you should do. But there’s a price to pay for that.”

Paintings that comprised The Brazil Series, were shown at the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen in 2010–11, in an exhibition curated by Kasper Monrad.
