Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan gets his first ever New York gallery exhibition, entitled "The Asia Series," at the Gagosian Gallery on Madison Ave., from Sept. 20 through Oct. 22.

Created on trips to Japan, China, Vietnam and South Korea, the works on view include "firsthand depictions of people, street scenes, architecture and landscape," according to a gallery press release.

The release continues: “Conversely, there are more cryptic paintings often of personalities and situations, such as ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Opium,’ or ‘LeBelle Cascade,’ which looks like a riff on Manet’s ‘Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe’ but which is, in fact, a scenographic tourist photo-opportunity in a Tokyo amusement arcade.”

The 100-page accompanying catalogue comes with four cover images to choose from. The text was written by artist Richard Prince in addition to interviews with John Elderfield and Bob Dylan.

Dylan's work has been previously shown in Chemintz, Germany (2007), the Statens Museum in Copenhagen (2008), and the Halcyon Gallery in London (2010) where price tags for most pieces ranged from 95,000 to 450,000 pounds (150,000-700,000 US dollars).
