"An exhibit to explore Marley's role as the catalyst to the reggae revolution, as well as his influence on music and culture over the past three decades.
Following a successful run at The GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, Messenger - The Bob Marley Exhibition comes to The BME. Visitors from the UK and around Europe will witness Bob Marley as a private, spiritual man, as a powerful performer who used his lyrics to give a voice to the disenfranchised and as a legend who has inspired legions of fans in the years since his death.
Marley's story is that of an archetype, which is why it continues to have such a powerful and ever-growing resonance: it embodies political repression, metaphysical and artistic insights, gangland warfare and various periods of mystical wilderness. And his audience continues to widen. Bob Marley gave the world brilliant and evocative music; his work stretched across nearly two decades and yet still remains timeless and universal. Bob Marley & the Wailers worked their way into the very fabric of our lives."
