Following successful stops in Moscow, Madrid and Lisbon, the highly anticipated “Banksy: Genius or Vandal?” finally makes its way to Hong Kong this month. As is customary when it comes to the infamous street artist, this exhibition is not authorised by Banksy, who prefers to protect his anonymity and independence from the system instead. As such, the 70 original works, installations, photographs and sculptures on show have been taken from private art collections across the world. We have a feeling this one will sell out pretty quickly, so make sure to get your tickets now!
When: Wednesday, 20 December to Sunday, 1 March
