“VANGUARD: THE EVOLUTION OF A GLOBAL MOVEMENT”: BRISTOL, UK
June 26, 2021 - October 31, 2021
The Vanguard exhibition at Bristol’s M Shed brings famous artists, such as Inkie, together with big voices in the street art world, such as Doug Gillen, to explore the influence of the city of Bristol on the global street art scene.
As the hometown of Banksy, Bristol has a lot to answer for. “Vanguard” celebrates everything that has contributed to making Bristol a global centre for street art and culture. The exhibition looks back at the last 30 years in Bristol and beyond, from graffiti’s anarchist origins to its present-day peace protests, bringing together an extensive collection of rare memorabilia and original art. “Vanguard” paints a comprehensive map of Bristol and the UK’s broader history, moving towards a progressive future where art sits at the core of cultural dialogue.
“Vanguard” is a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to experience the full timeline of one of street art’s hubs and enjoy the narrative of the movement’s emergence, its building momentum, and its success.
