This exhibition is an imposing event that brings together more than 100 original works and objects by the British artist known as Banksy, in a collection that gives an account of his entire production: twenty years of activity that begin with the paintings of the very first phase of his career, up to last year’s results with the works from Dismaland.
Banksy’s imagery is simple but not elementary, with messages that examine the themes of capitalism, war, social control and freedom in a broad sense and within the paradoxes of our time. For the first time, an exhibition examines Banksy’s images within a semantic framework that vehicles their origins and references. Completing the exhibition are several posters, Banksy of England banknotes, some very rare t-shirts and vinyl cover designs.
