Banksy Exhibition - Bristol 19/08/09


Well worth the entrance fee.


















Explanations tomorrow, if I feel up to it.

  1. I have not really kept up with the whole Banksy thing. Looking at your photographs some of it is amusing but it seems to depend so much on juxtaposition. It's the kind of thing you find in any half-decent Final Year Art School exhibition.

  2. Alan: It's heavily laced with irony and much of it is very amusing. You are correct about the juxtaposition. He has modified a number of existing exhibits and put his slant on them. The caravan with an eviction notice is an example - it's been on display at the museum for years and is well known locally.

    More words about the exhibition tomorrow.

  3. I refuse to comment because I'm sulking : you confused Kabbalah and myself a couple of days ago and I consider this to be as unforgiveable as spelling msitkaes.

  6. I have seen a lot of this work on the internet and would love to go. It seems like some queing is involved if the News is anything to go by.

  7. Kabbalah - I meant it not as an insult to your fine self but as an indication of the rapidity with which our Chairman is reaching an advanced stage of decrepitude.

    CB - see above comment!
