Hitting The White Cube

Banksy

Announced today:

British street-artist Banksy stepped up his game (already A). In New York over the last few weeks, he entered the The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and The American Museum of Natural History disguised in a beard and hat as a British pensioner. He then installed a piece of his own artwork within each of those establishments, complete with an appropriate frame and artist's statement/informational placard. The pieces remained in place for varying lengths of time; the works placed within the Natural History Museum and the Brooklyn Museum of Art still currently installed.

Images and further information were made exclusively available to Wooster Collective by Banksy.

Blogger heather thought:

every single part of this is genius. the fucking beetle's *name*, withus oragainstus, is the most economical and elegant thing i've seen done with words in a long time.

i do think this is very neat as well. it seems each piece found a home in its proper environment too, not just randomly placed..

i mean, that anteater (or some other member of edentata) is about to snatch up that nasty little beatle with its devilish forked tongue :)
