Wor Capitalisom and Liberty, Fond. terzo pilastro Italia e Mediterraneo_0341b
War, Capitalism & Liberty, are the contemporary issues explored in this exhibition through the artworks of the main international street artist known as Banksy. This thought-provoking exhibition is to be held at Palazzo Cipolla, from 24 May to 4 September 2016.

The exhibition includes extensive corpus artis of Banksy’s works coming from private international collections. Original paintings, prints, sculptures and rare objects will be exhibited, many of which have never been shown previously.

As a street artist with his roots in Bristol, Banksy has influenced globally the urban art movement and is arguably one of the movement’s most notorious artist. The exhibition will examine how social and political events of our world are viewed through the street art of Banksy; from his motif of monkeys declaring ‘Laugh Now But One Day I’ll Be in Charge’ to the chilling image of ‘Kids on Guns’.


// Guerra, Capitalismo & Libertà, sono le tematiche contemporanee affrontate in questa mostra attraverso le opere del principale street artist internazionale noto come Banksy. Una grande mostra sull’artista che si terrà a Palazzo Cipolla, dal 24 Maggio al 4 settembre 2016.

La mostra comprende un esteso corpus artis su Banksy proveniente da collezioni private internazionali. Saranno esposti dipinti originali, stampe, sculture e oggetti rari, molti di questi mai esposti in precedenza.

L’artista, originario di Bristol, ha influenzato enormemente la scena artistica a livello mondiale ed è oggi considerato il massimo esponente del movimento artistico conosciuto come Street Art. Nella mostra sarà messa in luce la sua visione artistica di fronte agli avvenimenti sociali e politici internazionali, dalla serigrafia di alcune scimmie che dichiarano ‘Laugh Now But One Day I’ll Be in Charge’ (Ridete adesso ma un giorno saremo noi a comandare), passando per l’agghiacciante immagine di ‘Kids on Guns’.
