Banksy: Virtual exhibit of world’s most notorious artist comes to Niagara Falls
Published July 5, 2022 at 7:56 pm
Known around the world for his guerrilla art that appears when you least expect it, Banksy has become a cultural phenomenon and underground hero whose creations draw crowds while amateur sleuths try to guess exactly who he is.
While the mysterious artist isn’t expected to be in attendance, his work, presented in a virtual format, will be featured this month in Niagara Falls in Banksy 360°: The World’s Most Elusive Street Artist, an unauthorized exhibit that will showcase his work using cutting-edge projection technology that will explore many aspects of his art.
More than 50 of Banksy’s work — no originals — will be featured across various multi-media surfaces that will be recreated in detail but presented in a way that will allow the visitor to view the art in ways they have never been seen.
While Banksy’s identity has been open to much speculation, his satirical art is very much public as he combines dark humour with political insight by inserting everyday images into absurd situations.
Using streetscapes as his canvas that appear almost overnight in some global locations, his work has been applauded as much as it is studied but it never fails to provoke a reaction. And, because his work mostly appears on public spaces, his exhibitions remain unauthorized and non-original but never fail to attract crowds.
Banksy 360° will take place at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre, 6815 Stanley Ave. in Niagara Falls.
The exhibit opens July 21 and runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
