From The Guardian-Revisionist Art: Thirty Works by Bob Dylan sees the singer parody vintage magazine covers in a series of silkscreens
Bob Dylan’s new exhibition consists of parody covers for magazines including Architectural Digest, TV Guide and Playboy.
“Mel Gibson Insists 3D Version of the Ten Commandments Movie Will Be Ready for Sundance,” reads the headline on Dylan’s spoof cover of Movie Scene. “NEW BABY DEODERANTS,” blurts a fictional edition of Baby Talk. All are part of Revisionist Art: Thirty Works by Bob Dylan, an exhibition of silkscreened works that opened at New York’s Gagosian Gallery this week.
The show was brought together with help from John Elderfield, former chief curator for New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
