NOW OPEN! BANKSY: GENIUS OR VANDAL? MAKES U.S. DEBUT ON THE FAMED LAS VEGAS STRIP
Interactive exhibition showcases more than 70 artworks from the mysterious street artist known as Banksy
Limited engagement at Fashion Show is now open!
BANKSY: GENIUS OR VANDAL?, the unofficial Banksy exhibition featuring the mysterious street artist’s famous works from private collectors, is now open on the famed Las Vegas Strip! Thought-provoking and interactive, the 12,000 square-foot BANKSY: GENIUS OR VANDAL? exhibition features the highest value collection of artworks from European private collectors ever presented, including the 700 pound “Stop Esso,” “Rose Trap,” “Holocaust Lipstick” and “Heavy Weaponery.” The exhibition is a limited engagement and will run through Sunday, April 5, 2020.
Produced by world-renowned exhibition producer EMS Entertainment and located inside Immersion Vegas, the new immersive entertainment venue, BANKSY: GENIUS OR VANDAL? showcases more than 70 original creations from the groundbreaking and mysterious street artist, including “one of a kind” artworks, 3D objects, limited editions, photographs, video installations and a specially-created multimedia presentation.
Banksy’s ironic and witty works are a protest against politics, war, capitalism and mortality, while becoming a hunting ground for journalists, photographers, vandals and art critics, alike. The so-called “Banksy effect,” a huge interest in street art and street artists, blew up the world art market, resulting in graffiti works, made on the verge of kitsch, being sold at prestigious auctions for record amounts. The apotheosis of Banksy’s struggle with modern art establishment was his 2018 performance at the Sotheby’s auction, where he destroyed his famous “Girl with Balloon.” The Banksy effect continues, evident in the recent Sotheby’s sale of his chimp-depicting “Devolved Parliament” which sold for more than $12 million. Banksy’s art is modern mythology shrouded in secret, intrigue, provocation and scandal.
Exclusive merchandise, including a personal “Vandal Kit” and print-on-demand services, will be available inside the adjoining 3,000 square foot retail store.
