Banksy at New York museums

Wooster Collective has exclusive images of Banksy installing four pieces in New York’s Brooklyn Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Museum of Natural History.


Dressed as a British pensioner, Banksy entered the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.

“This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue,” the artist explains. “They’re good enough to be in there, so I don’t see why I should wait”

Staff at the Met removed their new aquisition early Sunday morning while Banksy’s discount soup can print took pride of place in the MoMA for over three days before being torn down.
