For the first time ever, the MUDEC – Museum of Cultures in Milano is hosting a retrospective on Banksy, the British artist and writer whose identity is still unknown who is considered one of the leading exponents of contemporary street art. A Visual Protest. The Art of Banksy, is on show at MUDEC from 21 November 2018 to 14 April 2019.
His works are often laced with satire and deal with universal subjects such as politics, culture, and ethics.
The exhibition is not authorized by the artist, like all those that have been devoted to his work until now. Banksy continues to defend his anonymity and independence from the art system.
It showcases about 80 works including paintings, sculptures and prints by the British artist, accompanied by objects, photographs, and videos, about 60 album and CD covers, which the artist himself curated, and about forty pieces of memorabilia.
