In his grandest-scale project ever, “Banksy versus Bristol City Museum,” Banksy has installed over 100 works inside Bristol Museum, including an estimated 70 brand new, never before seen pieces. Work ranges from classic Banksy pieces to brand new sculpture, canvas and animatronics like those seen last in the NYC Village Pet Store show.
A bit about what fans can look forward to: The lower floor features Banksy’s work exclusively and a re-versioned “pet shop.” Elsewhere in the museum, Banksy’s work is mixed in with the “classical” works. Also on display is a complete mock up of Banksy’s studio.
Closed for just two days while the museum staff was told there was filming going on, Banksy kept the installation secret from all but a few insiders and the Museum Director up until the very last minute. The most amazing part about all of this is that the show was funded entirely by Banksy, not museum funding.
