Exhibition of 145 Banksy artworks to open at Salford’s MediaCity

A touring exhibition of Banksy’s original artwork will open at Salford’s MediaCity this fall after a yearlong stay in London.

He exhibits Art of Banksy, which will display 145 authenticated works including prints and oil paintings, which will open October 21.

The exhibition has not been authorized by the famous graffiti artist and all works are on loan from private collectors.


Girl With Balloon (Banksy Art)

Among the collections are works from 2002 to 2017, including works that have brought the artist international recognition such as Girl With Balloon (2002).

Flower Thrower (2003), with a scene of a young protester throwing a bouquet of flowers, will also be on display alongside Rude Copper (2002), which depicts a policeman holding up his middle finger.

Also among the works is Brace Yourself (2010), which caught the eye when Banksy donated the painting to a band formerly known as Exit Through the Gift Shop in exchange for the rights to their name.

The exhibit will be housed in a purpose-built 1,200 square meter temporary structure, giving visitors the opportunity to view the artist’s work in a way not possible on the street.
