Entry is free to ASES members/£10 for visitors (strictly by prior arrangement: a maximum of two visits per year, contact Membership Secretary for further information and to register as a visitor
The lecture will trace the story of Banksy’s humble beginnings as a tagger on the streets of Bristol in the 1980s to one of the most recognisable names in the art world. We will examine the reasons behind his incredible rise, looking at some of his famous stunts and discuss what his influence has been on the art market today and look at what his legacy, if any, might be.
