Bob Dylan’s Landscapes of Time
Two Tuesdays, November 5 and 12, 6:30–8:00 P.M. Location will be given to subscribers.
It is a testament to Bob Dylan’s relevance as an artist that his writings remain as unshakable today as the day they were written. Just as we return to the works of Homer, Shakespeare, and Rimbaud, poets who document the foibles and aspirations of their times, so do we return to Dylan. Come listen to Carlos Jimenez, internationally renowned architect and Dylan aficionado/scholar, expound on Dylan’s themes and lyrical power. Each session will consist of an introductory lecture and a detailed analysis of specific Dylan songs, supplemented by short musical videos.
As a restless troubadour Dylan traverses past, present, and future histories to unfold a turbulent yet moving story called America. Receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature for 2016 proved that this inimitable laureate will remain “Forever young”. Simply timeless.
Carlos Jimenez is an award-winning architect, a professor at Rice University School of Architecture, and principal of Carlos Jimenez Studio.
