The Art of Banksy
Event: The Art of Banksy
Venue: Good Carpark, Flinders St, Melbourne, Australia
Several factors differentiate this retrospective of street artist Banksy's works from other exhibitions. For starters, with 80 pieces, including iconic numbers such as Girl with a Balloon, on display sourced from roughly 40 different private collections, it's by far one of the largest of its type. Second, it's curated by Steve Lazarides, Banksy's former spokesperson and one of the few individuals to ever know the enigmatic artist personally. Finally, the exhibition is housed in a custom-designed venue complete with graffiti works by some of Melbourne's finest street masters.
