The international exhibition celebrating the work of Banksy will open in London in May 2021.
Tickets are now on sale for The Art of Banksy which will open in Covent Garden on the 20th May for a limited season.
The world’s largest touring exhibition Banksy artworks is finally coming to London and will include famous pieces such as Flower Thrower and Rude Copper among lesser recognised pieces.
Many of the pieces featured in the exhibition are on loan from private collections including authenticated and certified Banksy artworks rarely seen by the general public, alongside iconic favourites such as HMV Dog and Girl and Balloon. Infamous prints, sculptures and limited editions will be scattered across the walls of a vast 12,000 square foot space in the heart of Covent Garden.
Although The Art of Banksy is not authorised or curated in collaboration with the artist himself, the exhibition is curated by international specialist in the Street Art Genre, Chris Ford. He has co-curated a number of significant public and notable exhibitions including internationally touring show, The Art of Banksy (2014-2018), Banksy: Greatest Hits: 2002 – 2008 (London, 2018) and Street Art overview They Would Be Kings (2016) in association with Sotheby’s Hong Kong.
Talking about the exhibition he said: “This is a one-of-a-kind exhibition. Banksy is the most powerful and recognised artist of a generation, who has been completely ignored by the establishment thus far. There is no reason why there shouldn’t be a Banksy hanging in every single major contemporary art museum in the world.”
The Art of Banksy will be on display from the 20th May 2021. To book tickets visit: https://artofbanksy.co.uk/
