Banksy Exhibition Genius or vandal Madrid IFEMA
This art exhibition called “Banksy. Genius or vandal?” arrives at the IFEMA, Madrid fair, after its outstanding success in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Place and date of Banksy Genius or vandal
From 06-12-2018 to 10-03-2019 in the ‘espacio 5.1’. In association with ‘Lilley Fine Art Contemporary’ Art Trader Gallery. From Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Amongst his most recognized works, the original silkscreen of the ‘Girl with Balloon’ stands out, similar to the one that was destroyed in the London’s auction house in Sotheby, an unprecedented action.
The organizing team takes us on a tour displaying more than 70 of his most relevant works, among which stand out original pieces of the series.
Not exempt from controversy, this exhibition has not been authorized by the author (or groups of artists). So far, the emergent artist Banksy has not authorized any exhibition about his artworks in order to remain anonymous and to emphasize his position of independence from the system.
What we will see in the exhibition
The exhibition begins with a panoramic screen, in which an audiovisual production is being shown and surrounding us. Through this audiovisual work, some of the artist’s mysteries are revealed, among which we can find some clues that help us understand his work and development as an artist.
Among the exhibited works, some of them are offered for sale, including sculptures and silkscreens, or even videos and photographs.
