THE ART OF BANKSY in Amsterdam
With the excitement of last years Dismaland Bemusement Park still rife on folks' lips, the infamous anonymous street artist known as Banksy next "visits" Amsterdam - where during the month of July you can visit THE ART OF BANKSY with discount as a Museumjaarkaart-owner. Get your tickets online or at the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam. This is the European Premiere, starting June 18th thru to September 30th, 2016.
And while no one has specifically mentioned that Banksy himself is fronting this event, stated on his website on http://banksy.co.uk/faq.asp; "Banksy is NOT on Facebook, Twitter or represented by Steve Lazarides or any other commercial gallery." So understandably the merch (tee with Banksy's stenciled imagery) and entry fee etc … PHEW! For a moment there, I'd thought it was "Enter Thru The Gift Shop", innit? :p
“There are over 85 art pieces in the exhibition, which makes it the biggest show of Banksy. What we are doing is to make the whole scenario a unique and never seen experience.” – curator Steve Lazarides
"THE ART OF BANKSY consists of key artworks that mark the prolific street artist’s colorful climb to fame. Original canvasses, paintings, sculptures and interactive storytelling let’s you experience poignant periods of Banksy’s career. All pieces come from private collectors and the curators collection. Steve Lazarides is an English art gallery owner best known for his role as agent for street artist Banksy.
