Exit Through The Gift Shop: A Banksy Film

This Academy Award nominated documentary/mock-documentary delves into the world of contemporary street art and its recent financial and seminal surge within high-art circles.

The film features world-class artists such as Banksy, Sheppard Fairy and Ron English, and portrays the normalizing effect on subgenres by dominant culture while questioning the characteristic authenticity of urban art when it is stripped from the street and represented as a for-profit business.

Panel discussion on Winnipeg street art to follow.
