Banksy is being celebrated as a renowned artist with an exhibition at Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Italia e Mediterraneo. The exhibit titled War, Capitalism and Liberty is a presentation that will display graffiti, original paintings, prints, sculptures, objects and more all gathered from various international private art collections that span his entire career. “This is the largest collection of work by the artist known as Banksy, a corpus of over 120 works including sculptures, stencils, and other artistic expressions, all strictly from private collectors and, therefore, absolutely not removed from the street. The work critically examines contemporary issues of war, consumerism and politics, and this is the first time a major collection of artwork by the artist, now considered the world’s best street artist, has been curated from private international collectors by an independent and important museum,” commented Banksy art dealer and the exhibition’s co-curator, Acoris Andipa.
The exhibit will be open May 24th – September 4th. Warcapitalismandliberty.org
