Until September 4th you can enjoy original works, sculptures, installations, videos and photographs by the most famous anonymous British artist.
Genius or Vandal? The answer will be up to those who visit the Alfândega do Porto Congress Centre that hosts the exhibition “Banksy: Genius or Vandal?”. This exhibition gathers more than 70 original works by the British artist whose identity remains unknown. Original works, sculptures, installations, videos and photographs, belonging to private collections, can be seen until September 4th.
"The exhibition provides an immersion into the mysterious universe created by Banksy and proposes an unprecedented journey through more than 70 original works," said promoter PEV Entertainment.
In “Banksy: Genius or Vandal?” can also be found some clues about the “mysterious artist”; a background to his career and most controversial episodes; as well as some of his most important works, such as the original silkscreen of the Girl with Balloon series, similar to the one that was destroyed by the artist in an unprecedented action at Sotheby’s London auction house.
This exhibition, like all previous exhibitions dedicated to Banksy, is not authorised by the artist. It can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, between 11 am and 7 pm, and from 11 am to 8 pm on Saturdays. Entry ticket prices start at 15€ (children from 0 to 15 years old pay 7,50€).
