Banksy a Visual protest – from 8th September 2020 to 11th April 2021
After months of waiting and anticipation, we are finally pleased to confirm the arrival of the BANKSY A VISUAL PROTEST exhibition, available from 8 September 2020 to 11 April 2021 at the Chiostro del Bramante (Rome).
Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everyone could draw wherever they want. Where every street was flooded with a myriad of colors and short expressions. Where waiting for the bus standing at the stop was never boring. A city that gave the impression of a party open to everyone, not just real estate agents and business magnates. Imagine a city like this and step away from the wall – the paint is fresh.
It takes guts, and even a lot, to stand up as complete strangers in a Western democracy and invoke things that no one else believes in – like peace, justice and freedom.
Over 90 works, in a rigorous exhibition itinerary, tell the world of Banksy.
Inside the sixteenth-century architecture of the Chiostro del Bramante, in Rome, there is space for the “unknown” artist who has conquered the world thanks to works steeped in irony, denunciation, politics, intelligence, protest.
From Love is in the Air to Girl with Balloon; from Queen Vic to Napalm, from Toxic Mary to HMV, from prints for Barely Legal, one of the most famous exhibitions, to record projects for vinyl and CD covers.
“I really sucked with the spray can, so I started cutting out stencils” from Banksy’s words the indication of the technique he most used.
On display, thanks to the stencil: prints on paper or canvas, together with a selection of unique works made with different techniques from oil or acrylic on canvas to spray on canvas, from stencils on metal or concrete to some resin sculptures painted polymer or painted bronze.
We inform our customers that only 15 entrances are available every 15 minutes starting at 10.00 a.m every day (last entry at 8.00 p.m).
