Bansky vs. Bristol Museum

*Grabs late pass* This exhibit opened up over the weekend, and the above video is an incredible preview.

The infamous UK artist called Banksy said, “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off”.

    I read this article on findingDulcinea that seemed to indicate that defamiliarization was a key part of his work: http://www.findingdulcinea.com/news/entertainment/2009/june/Street-Artist-Banksy-Turns-Bristol-Museum-Upside-Down–but-With-Permission.html

    Doesn’t this seem to take away from that?
