Banksy's Secret Exhibition: Banksy Versus Bristol Museum

After years of pulling stunts on museums around the world, the guerrilla artist Banksy has gone legit. Somewhat. He's pulled off his most audacious stunt yet: a secret exhibition in Bristol's City Museum and Art Gallery.

In a rare statement Banksy said: 'The people in Bristol have always been very good to me - I decided the best way to show my appreciation was by putting a bunch of old toilets and some live chicken nuggets in their museum. [...]

He added: 'This is the first show I've ever done where taxpayers' money is being used to hang my ictures up rather than scrape them off.'

The exhibition - called Banksy Versus Bristol Museum - consists of more than 100 items and will run for three weeks.

Look you lamers. Feel free to slag on Banksy if you've got a legitimate complaint or theory on why his work has no merit but in pure artistic techicals, he's got it down.

It's aesthetically pleasing it's socially provocative, and as a rarer point in today's artistic environment, most of the times it doesn't actively repel the viewer. So slag off haters.

This show is a real treat and if you can make it to Bristol it's a must see. It is packed full of his artwork, some of which are quite hard to find as they are placed along side the museums usual exhibits. If sadly you can't make it, you can see some pictures and thoughts from my visit on the opening day. http://www.bristol-street-art.co.uk/street-art-blog/banksy-versus-bristol-museum
