This piece is going to stay online deliberately after the fabulous Banksy exhibition closes at the Bristol City Museum at the end of August 2009. Banksy is one of the most stimulating, offbeat, controversial and downright clever artists painting or creating installations anywhere on Earth.
The ‘infiltration’ of dozens of his works into Bristol’s city museum and gallery’s collections was a brilliant idea. It would be even more marvellous if Banksy could show this collection somewhere permanently… ideally in Bristol his home city. So come wandering around with me as I feebly try to describe some of this very strong social comment ! What this exhibition has also done is draw attention to the other, permanent exhibitions on at the museum.
If you didn’t have the privilege of seeing the show keep an eye open for any future Banksy exhibitions… not to be missed.
