Banksy gets permanent exhibition in Brussels
A new permanent exhibition in Brussels is highlighting the work of one of the most talked-about street artists in the world, Banksy.
The capital of Europe has plenty of street art, so it’s fitting that the illustrious Banksy, whose true identity remains a mystery, would be represented in some way.
The exhibition is located inside a former fabric house and features reproductions of Banksy’s work. Interestingly, even the surroundings were recreated so that visitors could see the work in its original context.
A team of international street artists were given access to the old fabric house -- located at Rue aux Laines, right in between Brussels hallmarks like Place Sainte-Catherine and Place De Brouckère – to shape the exhibition into what it is.
If the thought of a World of Banksy, as the exhibition is called, has you hungry for a cultural excursion, you can find tickets and more information here.
Of course, the World of Banksy could leave you wanting more. Well, you can still get your fill of street art by taking Brussels’ street art trail or by checking out various other Belgian cities with notable displays of the craft.
The exhibition promises to “guide you around the world in one single place”, an ambition befitting of such an international place as the Belgian capital.
