Art Miami Banks on Banksy

By Leah Faye Cooper

Of the works from 200-plus galleries set to be displayed at Art Miami, those by British street artist Banksy are quickly topping must-see lists. In early December, as the city plays host to Art Basel and an array of other contemporary fairs, Art Miami will debut a new venue, dubbed Context Art Miami. Banksy Out of Context will serve as the exhibition’s main attraction, with four walls dedicated to displaying his work. Culled from a private collection, they won’t be for sale, though Bansky pieces elsewhere at the fair will be. At the exhibit, Bansky, whose film Exit Through the Gift Shop was nominated for an Oscar last year, will see his curbside works displayed indoors, much to the delight of art lovers on this side of the pond.
