Banksy Makes Surprise Appearance at 'Art Show 2011'-- (and Mr. Brainwash Want's To Know What People Think!)
Banksy makes a surprise visit at 'Art Show 2011', and, on another topic, Mr. Brainwash wants to know what people think.
Mr. Brainwash said he does not like the connotation of the way it sounds when it has been said that all of the art will be destroyed at the end of the show. Destroy sounds so negative, and that was never his intention.
MBW's lease for the building ends at the end of this year, and at that point, the art on the walls of 'Art Show 2011' can not be realistically salvaged. The building is set to be demolished, or rented out again, and the walls must be made clear before then. The pieces were always meant to be temporary, that is all.
Mr. Brainwash said that the community participation area was very powerful to him and his favorite part of show. He wants to try and save some of the pieces he can. And he wonders what people think about saving some of the pieces of furniture and letting them live on through other art shows.
MBW wants to tread carefully and make sure that people don't think he is trying to take advantage of the situation. He wonders if most people think it is a good thing to save some pieces of art? Or not?
He also added that if most people do support the idea of saving some of the pieces, but some artists on the pieces don't want to be part of the pieces any longer, he is happy to remove or cover them up.
BTW-The monkey face character pictured on the fridge above is reportedly a Banksy, snuck into the community area of Art Show 2011. Dig it~
