If you haven't been to the Banksy Exhibition: Genius or Vandal in Fashion Show, then you need to get some culture in your life. It is located at 3200 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 and inside Fashion Show mall.
Get closer to the artistic world of one of the most controversial and influential artists of our day. You’ll see over 70 original Banksy works, sculptures, installations, videos and photos. These pieces from private worldwide collections are now displayed in Las Vegas for the very first time.
Banksy’s work arrived in Vegas on the heels of hugely popular runs in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Madrid and Lisbon. This exhibit features original creations from the groundbreaking and mysterious street artist. See one of a kind artworks, 3D objects, photographs, video installations, and a specially-created multimedia presentation. This popular attraction is located in the heart of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
The huge 12,000 square foot exhibit features one of the most valuable private art collections ever presented. Experience the 700 pounds “Stop Esso,” “Rose Trap,” “Holocaust Lipstick” and “Heavy Weaponry.”
Banksy’s ironic and witty works are a protest against politics, war, capitalism and mortality. His works have become a hunting ground for journalists, photographers, vandals and art critics. The so-called “Banksy effect,” a huge interest in street art and street artists, blew up the world art market, resulting in graffiti works being sold for record amounts. The height of Banksy’s struggle with the art establishment was his performance at the Sotheby’s auction, where he destroyed his famous “Girl with Red Balloon.” in front of a live audience.
The Banksy effect marches on, evident in the recent Sotheby’s sale of his chimp-depicting “Devolved Parliament”, which sold for more than $12 million. Banksy’s art is modern mythology shrouded in secret, intrigue, provocation and scandal.
The exhibition is a limited engagement, and runs through Sunday, April 5, 2020.
