The gates to The Art Of Banksy: “Without Limits” are finally open in Adelaide! Located in The Myer Centre, this extensive museum-quality exhibition houses over 150 Banksy artworks, including 35 originals. Tickets are still available, so purchase yours soon to avoid missing out on the first-ever major Banksy exhibition in Adelaide.
Listed by Times magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2010, Banksy is no ordinary artist. His work, consisting mostly of graffiti created using stencilled cutouts, tackles big topics about politics, capitalism and war. Despite his work rising to global fame, Banksy has retained his anonymity throughout.
Around 1993, Banksy’s graffiti began popping up on trains and walls around Bristol; and by 2001 his iconic imagery was spreading through the rest of the UK. Now, his graffiti can be seen around the world, from Israel to Ukraine. While in recent years Banksy has dabbled in more traditional art mediums such as acrylic on canvas, it is his dissident graffiti work that remains his most popular.
In this new Banksy exhibition in Adelaide, you can enjoy artworks from over 40 private collections around the world, including installations, sculptures, paintings, and of course his stencilled imagery. Learn more about this mysterious artist through the captions and additional information that accompanies each artwork, and enjoy Banksy’s wry sense of humour and witty commentary on global issues.
Standard tickets for the exhibition start at $41, while the Family Bundles and Group ticket options available offer a discount on the price. You can also upgrade your experience to Premium Admission that includes a pass, wristband, limited edition bookmark and spray painting a white t-shirt. Or you can upgrade to Gold Admission which includes a wristband, lanyard, pass, bookmark, and exclusive Banksy timeline booklet.
Many critics worry that Banksy’s fame glorifies what is essentially vandalism. Can graffiti be considered art? Issues regarding his rapid rise to fame and his satirical portrayals of political matters often divide audiences. Is Banksy a genius or a vandal? That is up to you to decide.
