Four days into the American government ‘shutdown’ and just as many into “Better Out Than In,” here we turn our attentions to English art superstar Banksy and his month-long installation across the streets of New York. The fourth release comes in a trio of stencils in Brooklyn and Manhattan. It seems as if existing messages reading “Dirty Underwear,” “Playground Mob” and “Occupy!” were garnished with a stencil reading “The Musical!” This ‘Broadway makeover’ looks like a funny take on how commodified meaningful occurrences can become in the modern day – how they become more entertaining rather than, say, catalyzing. Likely intentionally timed, look for these and other works from Banksy in New York throughout the month.
