Nobody really knows who the famous yet enigmatic British artist really is, but what we do know is that a phenomenal exhibition dedicated to his work is coming to Charlotte and where it will take place. And the secret location for Charlotte’s ‘Art of Banksy’ exhibit has been revealed as the AvidXchange Music Factory in Uptown Charlotte!
Banksy is regarded as one of the most valuable artists of our time, and now, after a successful run in Europe and Australia and a brilliant US debut in Atlanta, some of his most iconic pieces will be making their way to Charlotte for you to witness up close and personal.
First opened in 2006 in Uptown Charlotte, AvidXchange Music Factory is a hub for concerts, events, dining, bars and entertainment. The venue offers tons of different dining options such as Bocao Sushi and La Unica Bar & Grill as well as vibrant coworking space and luxury apartments. Now it’ll be transforming into a wonderland of all things Banksy!
The exhibition will have more than 150 pieces on display, including Banksy’s original art, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures, and so much more! What also makes this exhibit extra special is the fact some of his works will be reproduced with his stencil technique, especially for the occasion. Turning this incredible exhibition into an unforgettable immersive experience, custom-built for AvidXchange Music Factory.
As the enigmatic and elusive king of street art, Banksy has a unique power. He has an unnerving ability to get to the heart of the matter and is able to express strong political statements with poetry, energy and humor.
His street art is now seen as a gift in some of the cities that he chooses to use as his canvas, with many receiving immediate protection. This exhibition will showcase some of the preserved works, and much more including an in-depth video explaining the artist’s life story.
‘Art of Banksy’ will be making its debut at AvidXchange on Friday, February 25, 2022, and will be in Charlotte for a limited time only. Tickets are $26.20 for adults and $17.60 for children. You can also purchase a family ticket or make it extra special with their VIP package, which includes entry to the exhibition with skip-the-line access, and a poster!
