Beyond Generations: Bob Dylan Through the Looking Glass
A Series of Symposia In Three Acts

April 2, 8, and 9, 2022

A multidisciplinary, three-day Dylan symposium timed to close the exhibition, Retrospectrum, will include themes that move from the broadest possible look at Dylan the thinker and thought provoker and participants will explore how his art and his very person inspired and continue to inspire artists and audiences worldwide. Discussions will engage with how Dylan’s work speaks timelessly across generations whose values and interests have shifted with time; deals with a tumultuous half century of American history; confronts political and social injustice; treats death and life; racism and violence; love and betrayal; faith and despair, and all aspects of the human condition, particularly by deploying his own versions of folk, blues, country and gospel.
