Exhibition by Banksy and Friends

21 August-8 September 2012. This exhibition looks the concept of controversy through a series of works by the famous graffiti guerrilla artist Banksy, as well as other international artists, including Takashi Murakami, Damien Hirst, Eyesaw, T. Wat, Mau Mau, Grafter, Alec Monopoly, Redlock and Nancy Fouts.

The exhibition challenges the concept of art by basing its conceptual framework on the notion of imitation, based on the concept that all art is created by revisiting previous themes. No art can be original and perhaps the creativity of contemporary artists consists in their ability to use, modify and adapt existing material as their own. In fact, in today’s digital age, through social media and internet, the theft of images has accelerated the process of alteration and duplication. Emulation, imitation and recreation have become global phenomena.
