New Art Exhibit Opens In UK – Dismaland

A new art exhibit is opening this weekend in the UK, and it is a spoof of one of the world’s most popular destinations.

What makes the art installation so bizarre is the fact that the artists have taken iconic imagery with which we are all familiar, and twisted it into a new form of reality. According to the art website Colossal

The event has all the hallmark details of a traditional Banksy event from a shroud of ultimate secrecy (the event area was plastered in notices designating it as filming location for a movie titled Gray Fox) to general themes of apocalypse, anti-consumerism, and anti-corporate messages.

The brochure to Dismaland has a description of the park:

Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well.

 

Check out the entire article from Colossal HERE, and see more pictures of this new, interesting, and (a little) disturbing art exhibit.
