Author: Rome’s Palazzo Cipolla museum will display original works by Banksy from international private collections.
War Capitalism and Liberty. Wide-spanning, all about the big issues and unmistakably Banksy, could we have expected any other title for the internationally known, British street artist’s first ever public exhibition?
Usually on display in grey London streets, Banksy’s work will be seen as it never has before in Rome’s Palazzo Cupola museum. Crammed with over 120 original paintings, prints, sculptures, rare objects and, no doubt, large crowds, the curate exhibition promises to show a rich, unrivalled, career-spanning public view of Banksy’s vast collection of work. It will celebrate Banksy’s unique brand of satire, humour and dedication to giving a voice to those who can’t be heard.
Here, we’ve collected some of the works on show at the exhibition. We can't wait for the vast exhibition of one of the world’s most respected (and notorious) street artists and activists who has captivated international audiences since the late 1990s.
War Capitalism and Liberty will be held in the Palazzo Cipolla museum, Rome, from 24 May - 4 September.
