I have been invited to give a 15 min talk before the first opening of Banksy’s Exit through the gift shop next Friday as part of the Design Indaba Film Festival
I have mixed feeling about the film so im not to sure what I will speak about just yet,.
Taken off the Design Indaba Website:
“The Oscar-nominated documentary directed by Banksy tells the story of a man’s obsession with street art. The film charts his constant documentation of his every waking moment on film, from his cousin, the artist Invader, to a host of street artists, especially Shepard Fairey and Banksy. “Subversive, provocative and unexpected, Exit Through the Gift Shop delights in taking you by surprise, starting quietly but ending up in a hall of mirrors as unsettling as anything Lewis Carroll’s Alice ever experienced,” wrote the LA Times.
On Friday 18 February at 20:30, to introduce the film will be Ricky Lee Gordon aka Freddy Sam – artist, curator and founder of /A WORD OF ART gallery and project space, and Write on Africa community art and inspiration project.”
