HONG KONG///”BANKSY ROBS HONG KONG” SELLS OUT…
We're not going to devote a lot of time and space to the unauthorized second-hand sale of consigned works that is the current "BANKSY ROBS HONG KONG" show presented by FABRIK CONTEMPORARY ART at the HONG KONG ARTS CENTER that opened last nite, but for the curious, here's a look at what Banksy's first organized foray into the Asian market looks like. Since the artist and his camp had no part in the exhibition, no new works were presented and the show consists mainly of pre-owned prints and other limited-edition serigraphs with few original pieces of art on display. Of particular interest, however, were some never-before-seen chunks of the warehouse installation Banksy painted for the afterparty of his 2002 "Existencilism" show at the 33 1/3 Gallery in LA that were later removed and preserved by an astute private collector. As of this writing, all works in the show had been spoken for and prices were as insane as any other Banksy sale, with some works reaching the $500,000 mark. HAVE A LOOK:
