UPDATE (12:56am): As the night has worn on, I’ve lost confidence the validity of this photo. I think there is at least a 50% chance that this photo is either fake, part of ploy/decoy, or only one component of the Banksy Summer Show. So no more rumors, you can probably just disregard this post, and let’s all wait until Friday or Saturday to hear all the real info about the show.
As mentioned yesterday, there is a Banksy show confirmed to open on June 13th. Other than that, not much is known. Personally, I haven’t even been following the rumors too closely, but this photo is too interesting to pass up.
That photo was taken by Bristol Street Art through the door of Bristol’s City Museum, and is very similar to the Glastonbury Stonehenge piece that Banksy did in 2007 at the Glastonbury music festival.
This has led to rumors of a retrospective at the museum, which was closed today and is also closed tomorrow.
On the other hand, the unofficial (I assume) Banksynews twitter gave the clue “animals” about the show on May 22nd and that doesn’t seem to fit so well with a museum retrospective. So I guess we’ll just have to wait until the 13th to know for sure.
