Banksy's work on display in Rome
By Euronews

<p>Works by the artist known as Banksy are going on display for the first time in Rome’s Palazzo Cipolla Museum.</p> <p>The unique exhibit – called <a href="http://www.warcapitalismandliberty.org/">War, Capitalism and Liberty</a> features works taken from private international collections, which look at social and political events through the irreverent artistic eye of the author.</p> <p>“The real focus is about these three themes,” explained curator Acoris Andipa. “We’ve just chosen to explore them through the art works of Banksy, unfortunately Banksy has become such a phenomenon now that the emphasis is now on Banksy as opposed to war, capitalism and liberty. And that’s what I really wanted to explore with my co-curators are these three very important topical subjects.”</p> <p>Items on show include “Rage, Flower Thrower”, “Rude Copper”, “Golf Sale” and a print of supermodel Kate Moss in the style of Andy Warhol.</p> <p>The show, which is not authorised by the mystery artist himself, runs at the Palazzo Cipolla museum in the Italian capital until September 4.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Mystery artist Bansky’s work showcased in Rome museum <a href="https://t.co/c0Qh4M7TrE">https://t.co/c0Qh4M7TrE</a><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Rome?src=hash">#Rome</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bansky?src=hash">#Bansky</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/museums?src=hash">#museums</a> <a href="https://t.co/P8HGiF5vH8">pic.twitter.com/P8HGiF5vH8</a></p>— DT Next (@dt_next) <a href="https://twitter.com/dt_next/status/735531771165429760">25 May 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
