Exhibitions in Bologna: Banksy’s non-conformism at Palazzo Albergati

Bologna is a city rich in history and culture, characterized by an artistic tradition that is difficult to match.

In fact, its immense cultural heterogeneity has always inspired musicians, painters and directors who recognize its uniqueness.

As a consequence, exhibitions in Bologna, consequently, follow one another with pressing speed: citizens and visitors are in fact constantly enlivened by diverse events of this kind.

In this regard, from 11 November to 7 May 2023, the wonderful setting of Palazzo Albergati hosts the exhibition Jago, Banksy, TvBoy and other counter-current stories, an artistic journey that exhibits the works of some of the most non-conformist and controversial artists of recent years.

Banksy and street art in Bologna

Among the most eagerly awaited exhibitions in Bologna is certainly that of Bansky, the renowned British writer with an unknown identity, who since the end of the 1990s has stirred consciences and mentalities with his art.

Banksy is currently considered one of the greatest exponents of street art, a manifestation of modern art that converts public places into the canvases of the past.

The objective of street art (which should not be confused with acts of vandalism) of which Banksy sees himself as the protagonist, is to connect the artist with the urban spaces in which he works, often focusing attention on current and controversial issues.

Banksy’s provocative and non-conformist works find in Bologna, a city that has been the symbol par excellence of Italian counter-culture for years, the most suitable place to stimulate the soul and mind of citizens and visitors.
