Drawn blank in Provence, Bob Dylan

Venue: Renzo Piano Pavilion

The exhibition highlights previously unseen aspects of Bob Dylan's artistic practice. The never-before-seen paintings are based on drawings Dylan made during his tours of Europe and America between 1989 and 1991. Alongside Dylan's paintings will be works by artists such as Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall, whose practice was influenced by their time in the south of France.

Water and dreams

Venue: Old Store Wine House Gallery

In front of the garden of my house there is a very shallow river leading to a small lake, so that it can be called a ditch. The river is greenish in colour and is an artificial mixture of salt and fresh water. The water is so clear that you can see the fish in it very well. During the day, the surface of the water is like a mirror, reflecting the blue of the sky and the green of the lush plants along the river.

Idris Khan

Venue: Richard Rogers Gallery

Idris Khan's work is distinguished by a unique aesthetic of layering materials, bordering on abstraction and figuration. Applying layer upon layer, the artist explores the themes of history, how it is sedimented and the different strata that constitute an experience. Her exhibition at Château La Coste focuses on a series of works on paper on the theme of nature and the cycle of seasons.

Annie Morris will be the first artist to be exhibited in the new Oscar Niemeyer Pavilion.
