A monumental Banksy exhibition arrives in Prague with a brand new concept
“The World of Banksy” premieres its brand new concept in Prague for the first time in the world:
The classic exhibition concept "The World of Banksy" was completely revised and improved. You can see it for yourself in Prague which is the first city to offer an insight into our brand new digital concept.
Banksy is without a doubt the world’s most famous and celebrated graffiti artist. Now, a brand new show presenting the art icon is coming back to Prague. Set in the unique premises, the exhibition will revive the street atmosphere inside the Baroque style church of St. Michael bringing new artworks and quite a few surprises.
The World of Banksy hosts over 115 artworks by the elusive creator.
The exhibition displays murals, unique pieces from private collectors, grafiities, canvases, projections of his artworks, video installations, and more. Some pieces were reproduced and compiled especially for this unique show.
The exhibition covers a period of his early career from late 90’s to this year and features Banksy's most well known pieces like “Girl and Balloon” and “Sweep It Under The Carpet” as well as some of the artists’ lesser-known works.
In an actually very Banksy-esque fashion, this exhibition is unauthorized, with no blessing from the artist himself.
A Can’t-Miss Experience: The World of Banksy
Banksy does not see any harm in declaring himself an “art terrorist”. To some, his works of art are poignant, thought-provoking, ironic and humorous. To others, it is just plain vandalism! Whichever side of the fence you are on, this show presents a great opportunity to see a variety of his works and is definitely not to be missed.
About the location (What a place!)
Just like Banksy usually presents his art at unusual places, our exhibition also takes place at an unusual location - a church right in the heart of Prague. Czech priest and church reformer Jan Hus used to preach here in the 15th century. The church and adjacent monastery were later disestablished during the reforms of Emperor Joseph II in the 18th century. In its most recent history, the church building served as a warehouse and a nightclub. Now, after centuries, it finally hosts another reformer - Banksy!
