Banksy At The Bristol Museum 2009

banksy-bristol-museumStreet-artist Banksy has a new show in his home town of Bristol, England. Although some of the pieces were seen in New York last year, the Bristol Museum is also showing over 70 new pieces of work offering political satire and social mockery. Core77 says that Kate Brindley, Director of the museum, managed to keep the exhibition under wraps from upper management, the local council and most of the museum staff by pretending the build-out was part of a movie shoot. Here’s a trailer Banksy has posted on his site:

The museum website says about ‘Banksy vs Bristol Museum’:

Throughout the summer, visitors will find some unusual specimens amongst the museum’s permanent collection – a stonehenge made from portable toilets greets visitors on arrival, a burnt out ice cream van now replaces the enquiries desk and the life size historic biplane suspended from the ceiling now provides refuge for a Guantanamo bay escapee. Banksy has filled the museum with his own wry take on classical art.

Check out the collection of images by MG/BS4 taken from the show on Flickr.

This exhibition should not be missed!
