Bansky features in Summer exhibition in three Suffolk towns

Several artworks by controversial street artist Banksy are to be shown at three west Suffolk venues this summer.

He will be joining other well-known artists at the Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour exhibition, which is being regarded as one of the most important contemporary art shows this year.

The three locations are Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds, the National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket and Haverhill Arts Centre.

Banksy street art of child with crowbar on London Road North in Lowestoft, Suffolk. Painted as part of The Great British Spraycation.

Running from 3 June until 1 October, the display at Moyse’s Hall will include Banksy’s ‘Sandcastle Girl’, which was painted on a wall in Lowestoft during his ‘spraycation’ visit to East Anglia in 2021. Open on the same dates the Newmarket exhibition will feature Banksy’s ‘Hula Hoop Girl’, while several of his original works will be on show at the Haverhill Arts Centre’s exhibition from 16 July until 16 September.

Without doubt, Banksy is the street artist that everyone knows of from Sydney to London and Rome to New York. He has turned an illegal act of criminal damage into the respected and valued street art of today. Merging stencil work and visual skill with political comment he has achieved amazing publicity and makes people smile.

Pure Evil – Pussy Riot Putins Worst Nightmare.

Mutiny in Colour will host over 300 works from some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists as well as Banksy. These include Blek le Rat, Pure Evil, My Dog Sighs, Kaws, the Connor Brothers, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sherlock, Swoon, Ben Eine, Bambi, Hush and Lamont White, to name a few.

It follows the huge success of the Moments exhibition at Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds in 2021, which attracted nearly 25,000 visitors, and will be supported by a number of high-profile events and community projects.

Entry prices reflect the cost-of-living crises set at just £7 per location for adults and £3 for children aged 12-18 years, under 12s will be free. Tickets for each location, or all three, can be booked online at selecting your preferred venue.
