Banksy on Mount Titano

From 19 March to 19 June 2022

 

Banksy on Monte Titano, curated by Stefano Antonelli and Gianluca Marziani, is produced and organized by MetaMorfosi Association. Divided into six distinct exhibition events, the project will bring exhibitions of classical and contemporary world renown artists to San Marino.

The most iconic artist among them, originally from Bristol, is perhaps the most exemplary case of popularity for a living author since the time of Andy Warhol. Banksy will be on display with his famous and enigmatic works: images and forms of unprecedented ethical, evocative and thematic power. Serigraphs that have become a cult among international collectors, real devotional objects that outline the iconic protagonists of the Banksian imagination. A selection of numerous original screen prints will be on display, those that Banksy considers fundamental traces for spreading his ethical messages. These are the images that have decreed the global success of one of the most complex, brilliant and intuitive artists of our century.

28 works on display, including two true icons of the British artist's production, now known and loved all over the world for their immediate artistic trait and powerful social messages: Girl with Balloon, screen printing on paper from 2004 -05, which in 2017 was voted in a poll as the most loved work by the British and Love is in the Air, a work on paper that reproduces on a red background the stencil that appeared for the first time in 2003 in Jerusalem, depicting a young man throwing a bouquet of flowers.

The works of art and objects presented in the exhibition come exclusively from private collectors.
