“I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one,” said Banksy. The piece will be exhibited in one of Walker’s 17th-century Old Master galleries that include “religious sculpture” and “church altarpieces.” The piece sits in the Walker Art Gallery.
Reyahn King, Director of Art Galleries at National Museums Liverpool said, “We are thrilled to display the work of this major contemporary artist. It is a huge coup and we’re sure his work will spark a reaction with visitors. Banksy specified that it be shown alongside our period collection and we were very happy to oblige.”
