Om museet

From the 15th of March, "Asobuild" in Yokohama, Japan will be home to the exhibition “Banksy: Genius or Vandal”, the first exhibition in Japan of the British iconoclast that revolutionised contemporary art and whose identity remains a mystery. The exhibition conceives an immersion into the mysterious universe created by Banksy and takes you on an unprecedented journey along 70 original art works provided by various international private collectors. Tickets are on sale at www.banksyexhibition.jp  

BANKSY: Genius or Vandal? Takes us closer to the controversial artistic universe of one of the most influential creators in recent years, through different thematic areas and more than 70 creations that include original works, sculptures, installations, videos and photographs.

The pieces originated from private collections and with collaboration of Lilley Fine Art / Contemporary Art Gallery, are exhibited in Japan for the first time.

An impressive multimedia installation created especially for this exhibition will welcome visitors, revealing clues of the mystery artist, highlighting his most important pieces framing his unusual career wrapped in controversy. Amongst his most popular work is an original serigraphy of the series “Girl with Balloon”, similar to the one destroyed by the artist in an unseen action at Sotheby's London auctioneer.

Genius or Vandal? The public decides.

Slippery, provocative, mysterious.... Banksy, the British artist whose identity is still unknown, is considered one of the main contemporary street art icons. His art, many times satirical, address universal issues such as politics, culture or ethics. The aura of mystery that, by choice and necessity, is perpetuated every time Banksy is mentioned, makes him the mythical figure of our time.

From asphalt trenches, Banksy has challenged the rules of the contemporary art game. His visual protest connected with a huge and heterogenous audience and today he is one of the most recognised and admired amongst younger generations.

Alexander Nachkebiya, exhibition curator: "Banksy is one of the brightest and most important Artists and even a phenomenon of our time. His work is a challenge to the system, it is a protest, it is an extremely well-built brand, it is a mystery, it is a violation of the law... according to our idea, every visitor of the Exhibition will be able to decide for himself: who is Banksy - a genius or a vandal, an artist or a businessman, a provocateur or a rebel? Our Exhibition shows the breadth of Banksy’s talent - he is always multidimensional, he makes visitors think and decide for themselves. His work is always topical, very comprehensive, his images speak and sink right into our soul – I guess all this makes him a genius to me.”.

Organised by TV Asahi in partnership with Akatsuki Live Entertainment, “Banksy: Genius or Vandal” arrives in Japan after a unprecedented success in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Madrid, Malaga, Hong Kong, Milan, Lisbon and Las Vegas, where it was visited by over a million people.

BANKSY. Genius or Vandal? Will be on display between 15th of March and 27th of September 2020. Tickets to the exhibition can be bought at www.banksyexhibition.jp

This exhibition, as all that have previously been dedicated to Banksy, is not authorised by the artist, that continues to pursuit his anonymity and his independence from the system.

    Dear, Mr.BANKSY we can't do anything to change the world until 'covid-19' crumbles, in the meantime, we should all go to your exhibition to console ourselves, PUTTING A MASK ON LIKE YOU DO! Wait, Wait, Wait, I got it! Thinking twice, Now capitalism is already crumbling BY COVID-19? So, This is the very time to change the world just as you wished!?

    作品の背景が良くわかるのでとても良い。 ただ、音声ガイドの声が作品により聴き取りづらいものがあったので、★ひとつ減らしました。 エリア近くで知らなかった展示も探せそうなので、今後も活躍できるアプリになると期待します。
