Fans of Bob Dylan won’t want to miss ‘Mondo Scripto’, an exhibition of the musician’s most renowned lyrics at London’s Halcyon Gallery until 30th November. Each song’s lyrics are handwritten and accompanied by an original pencil drawing by Dylan to enhance the unfolding dialogue. As the first musician to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016, Dylan is highly regarded as one of America’s greatest singer-songwriters and a worldwide cultural icon. One of his most well-known songs, ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ (1973) has been reimagined with a line-by-line illustration.

Mondo Scripto is at Halcyon Gallery until 30 November 2018.

Christian Marclay’s The Clock at the Tate Modern

After captivating audiences across the world from New York to Moscow, Christian Marclay’s ‘The Clock’ has arrived at the Tate Modern. The 24-hour long installation is a montage of thousands of film and television images of clocks, from thrillers to westerns and science-fiction, edited together to show the actual time, making it both an exhibition of cinematic history and a functioning timepiece. Several years of research and production were necessary for Marclay to produce the piece and the result is a fast-paced journey through a vast range of narratives, settings and moods.

The Clock is at the Tate Modern until 20 January 2019.
