Exit Through the Gift Shop – Banksy (2010)

Banksy made this exhilarating piece centering around Frenchman Thierry Guetta, himself (in his usual hooded brilliance), and the curious, and lamentable question of ‘What is Art?’. Watch!

Banksy, Exit through the gift shop !

MBW is a good man. Not sure of Banksy though, in showing his ‘friend’ in not so good a light.

Art is relative, art is not absolute, and its alright for MBW to find stardom. But MBW finding stardom reflects poorly on us peeps.

Good one. There will be only one Banksy. Before and After. There will be many MBWs though.

I like the ‘tour’ of Banksy’s secret hide-out. Not to be seen again.

Who would want to show a good friend like Thierry in bad light. None other than Mr Banksy himself. Banksy does not laugh at himself does he, he always laughs at others.

I’ve seen this movie 4 times and it’s very clear to me that Banksy wants to show what an annoying wannabe Thierry Guetta or, “Mr. Brainwash,” is. However, two of my friends fail to realize that Banksy uses clever subtlety to paint Guetta in a bad light.
Isn’t “Exit Through The Gift Shop” a CLEAR diss to Thierry Guetta? Is clear as day to me.

I am more interested in crafts, functional art, and fiber art opposed to the fine arts. I can draw/paint if I have to but it’s not what I prefer to spend my time doing. Photoshop is a powerful software, and most ‘artists’ these days are merely software driven like Thierry and his ‘photoshop assistants’. I like Banksy though, because he is fun.

I loved Mr Brainwash (Thierry Guetta), he is essentially a good man, well intentioned..why should anyone feel bad that he arrived where he arrived..?

In “Exit ..” Thierry Guetta makes a translucent sticker of himself with a video camera which he begins to stick everywhere. He then begins to scale this image to a larger size, but how did he put the image on this translucent sticker? Where can I find this material? How can I put the image on it?

What are some rhetorical strategies banksy uses in the film? How effective are they?

I watched ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ yesterday and as much I loved Mr Brainwash’s (aka Thierry Guetta’s) madness, I thought his work was just what would sell and become popular (hence him getting carried away with the promoting) rather then something that means anything. Also, he only came up with some pretty obvious ideas and got his little workers to do the work for him. On the other hand, sometimes, art is just meant to look good and the public can attach whatever interpretation on to it and visually MBW’s work wasn’t the most ugly thing around. So, I’m… Read more »
