Messenger - The Bob Marley Exhibition

"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."
