Immerse yourself in all things Banksy at this exciting new exhibit taking Atlanta by storm!
A celebratory exhibition delving into the world of Banksy has opened at Underground Atlanta! As the historic shopping and entertainment district undergoes a vibrant transformation, The Art of Banksy: “Without Limits” is a spectacular way to kick off this exciting Downtown redevelopment.
The exhibition has more than 150 pieces on display, including Banksy’s original art, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures, and so much more! What also makes this exhibit extra special is the fact some of his works have even been reproduced with his stencil technique, especially for the occasion. Turning this incredible exhibition into an unforgettable immersive experience, custom-built for Underground Atlanta.
As Banksy is one of the most valuable artists in the world, you can expect unbeatable insight on both the art and the artist. From the British artists roots in the nineties, to in-depth analysis on pieces that have popped up across the globe. This unmissable multi-media exhibit will highlight the whole timeline of the street artist’s work. The short documentaries playing throughout allow you to process and understand the pieces in a brand new light, and shapes the exhibition into an extremely emotional and introspective journey.
Unafraid to make a statement, Banksy’s work is notoriously satire, and a rolodex commentary on several political and societal issues. The exhibit highlights this perfectly from the get go, as they kick things off with a cardboard version of airport security, with many questioning if the detectors are real. This piece is one of the ‘Dismaland’ replicas, Banksy’s dystopian theme park. No topic is off-limits, with art touching on the environment, capitalism, major corporations, and beyond!
Regardless of the artist’s notorious reputation, now his work can receive immediate protection, and has also been sold at auctions for millions of dollars. This exhibit features 27 original works purchased by a private collector, and many reproduced pieces made by five Atlanta- and Mexico-based artists. So make sure you get your tickets for this impressive exhibition, in Atlanta for a limited time only.
