A strange Love. Remaking Dr Strangelove

Kirstan Hortan watched the Stanley Kubrick movie 730 times over two years. ... using things around his studio, he decided to replicate the stills from the movie...

Banksy “Soldier with Spraycan

The images above - exclusive to the Wooster site and provided by Banksy - are of Banksy installing four pieces in New York's most prestigious museums - The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History.

Comments: remaking

Woah, synchronity (either that or Robotwisdom). I was about to draw your attention to this.

Reminds me of the young art college scamps who inserted a burnt thong in a frame into the 1982 Paul Taylor-curated Popism exhibition at the NGV, through the then unlocked door to the VCA painting studios out the back.

However, I'm sure they're all now respectable pillars of the community, working in advertising, the film/TV industry or government now.

And last time I was in London, bits of Banksy''s work would pop up all over the place, 'specially round Soho - where very smart people are now willing to give him money for him doing his work on his own terms.

With a thong in my Art...
I'd say Popism probably needed such a shot.

And yep, I think Pillars is spot on, respectable or not.

Dressed as a British pensioner, over the last few days Banksy entered each of the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.
He says - "This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue."
