Banksy Versus the Bristol City Museum

Goli Mohammadi

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

In the UK, lines outside Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery (estimated to be an hour wait time) are testimony to the popularity of notorious street artist Banksy. The museum is proud to present a unique collaboration between the city’s foremost cultural institution and one of the region’s most infamous artists. Most widely recognized for his subversive stencil art, Banksy needs no introduction to many. And of course in true Banksy fight-the-power style, admission is free. The exhibit will run until August 31st. Wish I was on the other side of the pond for this one! Since the installation seems beyond words, check out the trailer for some flavor:
