Art scandal: Moscow has shown Banksy's works without his permission


Exhibition of works of Banksy in the Central House of Artists.
The artist has learned about an exhibition accidentally, from private correspondence. Organizers assure that everything is lawful — exhibits are taken from galleries and private collections. Organizers hope for solid revenue — about 180 million rubles the Exhibition of works of Banksy in the Central House of Artists. Photo: Kirill Zykov/AGN Moscow the Famous sidewalk artist Banksy whose real name is unknown, has said that he not that has no relation to an exhibition in the Central House of Artists in Moscow, he wasn't even aware that she has opened at the beginning of June. "I have seen it and have thought of you". Banksy has published a correspondence screenshot with the unknown who has sent him a photo of a banner of the Moscow exhibition. The entrance, according to the artist's interlocutor, costs about 20 pounds. Banksy was indignant: "What for devilry?" The publication from Banksy (@banksy) 15 Aug, 2018 at 9:00 PDT Being the author of street art, it doesn't take from people money for viewing of works, but he isn't that person who can complain that people expose his creations without the permission. And permission was also not required, the PR-director of the Moscow exhibition Elena Bukhmak:elena Bukhmak the PR-director of the Moscow exhibition Banksy "Says we never positioned this exhibition as a product which has been made together with Banksy or is coordinated by him. It is the collection made of meetings of private collectors plus from content which we prepared by means of designers — they created a multimedia show and also our photographer who across Great Britain has taken pictures of the remained Banksy's works. The exhibition is absolutely legal, we have permission to exhibiting of all works with all collectors who have a right these works to show at exhibitions". The ticket is actually cheaper: not 20, but about eight pounds, that is 550-650 rubles depending on day of the week. Even the VIP with an excursion costs 1400 rubles, or 16 pounds. Banksy thinks both of exhibitions, and of sale of the works very much, the director of the Museum of Modern Art "Garage" Anton Belov:anton Belov the director of the Museum of Modern Art "Garage" "Says he forbids when pieces of walls steal from the city, cut. And when he sells prints, declares in advance that he will sell somewhere prints, people stand in a queue, then he changes a location. He specially creates such game, and yes, these prints officially can be on sale after that at auctions, in galleries. At the living author to do an exhibition without his participation — it is very strange. Naturally, in an exhibition of the prints of Banksy would obviously not uchastvat. He, maybe, would make some next park as he has made in London, but would never begin to do nothing similar as some exhibition of prints is a sharp lowering of the level of the artist". Matter not only in ethics. Informal exhibitions are accurately registered, as a rule, that they are informal. And here visitors were misled: and the artist's logo large letters on a 70-meter banner, and a brand of MTS which is mentioned near his name, the artist considers, the artist, famous under the pseudonym Pokras Lampas:pokras Lampas, "I think that it in the first an ocher
