Curated by Banksy’s former gallerist Steve Lazarides, the Unauthorized Retrospective hosted at Sotheby’s gallery space S|2 is a selling exhibition featuring from prints, originals on canvas and wood as well as sculptures. With 70 pieces from the mid-1990s to 2009, the show displays some works to the public for the first time like the stencil version of the Kissing Coppers, a Monkey Queen portrait, or “Banksus Militus Vandalus,” a taxidermy sculpture illegally installed in a natural history museum in 2004. On view through July 25, the retrospective will give Banksy fans a chance to view these rare, much talked-about works in a strange collision of worlds — from the street to the high-end auction house.
