Banksy Cut and Run List

Comprehensive list of art works exhibited by Banksy at “Cut and Run” Show, GOMA, Glasgow, Jul-Aug 2023

Exhibition art works in roughly the order they appeared in the show, with notes on where the art originally appeared and the elements which make up the display.   Some titles are completely made up, in fact they all are just most weren’t made up by Banksy.  Unless otherwise stated the art work should be assumed to have been originally an outdoor “street art” piece. 

Banksy did not allow cameras or phones in the exhibition.  Photos below are to give an idea of what the Cut and Run art work looks like when previously displayed on the street or in other Banksy shows, they are not the actual item exhibited at Cut and Run. Except for the polaroids, which show parts of the artwork, photo by Cut and Run attendants and also a couple taken after you were allowed to repossess your own phone.
