The Art of Banksy
21 October 2022 @ 11:00 - 19:00Free
The Art of Banksy, presented in association with HOME, features 145 authenticated Banksy works ranging from prints, canvases, limited-edition pieces, unique works and fascinating ephemera.
Following a successful year-long run in London and critical acclaim around the world, The Art of Banksy is now open at MediaCity, Salford until 8 January 2023. This blockbuster exhibition has gathered 145 iconic pieces from private collections across the globe to create the world’s largest touring collection of authenticated and unique Banksy artworks.
This major exhibition has already brought Banksy’s era defining works to over one million people, all across the globe including Melbourne, Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney, Washington DC, Boston, Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto, Miami, Gothenburg, and London. Now the North of England has the chance to experience the infamous artist’s most well-known works, alongside those rarely seen by the public.
Visitors can see the iconic artworks that brought the anonymous artist international acclaim, including Girl with Balloon (2002) in three different colour variations, Flower Thrower (2003), Rude Copper (2002), and Brace Yourself (2010) – a work which made headlines when Banksy gifted the painting to the band formerly known as ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ in exchange for the rights to their name.
Discover how Banksy became the most talked about artist in modern history and explore the power of art to affect social change, inspire the public and lay bare the undercurrents of social issues with understated wit.

The exhibition is open daily from 21st October 2022 until 8th January 2023, opening times vary. The exhibition is closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
