Following the huge success of the moments exhibition at Moyse’s Hall Museum in 2021, which attracted nearly 25,000 visitors, West Suffolk presents one of the country’s biggest modern art exhibitions of 2023 featuring several artworks by controversial artist Banksy.

The exhibition will host over 300 works from some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists as well as Bansky. These include Blek le Rat, Pure Evil, My Dog Sighs, Kaws, the Connor Brothers, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sherlock, Swoon, Ben Eine, Bambi, Hush and Lamont White, to name a few.
Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour will run simultaneously across three locations in West Suffolk during the summer, namely Moyse’s Hall Museum, Bury St Edmunds; the National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket and Haverhill Arts Centre. It is being organised in association with Brandler Galleries.
The all-new display at Moyse’s Hall will include Banksy’s ‘Sandcastle Girl’, which was painted on a wall in Lowestoft during his ‘spraycation’ visit to East Anglia in 2021.
Open on the same dates, the Newmarket exhibition will feature Banksy’s ‘Hula Hoop Girl’ and a Citroen Berlingo van painted for Coventry Museum by My Dog Sighs. This stunning and unique piece features two hundred eyes on the bodywork and a pair of hanging ‘eye cans’ as a homage to the furry dice of the time.
Haverhill Arts Centre’s exhibition will also include several original Banksy pieces and the critically acclaimed ‘Argentine’ artwork by Swoon, one of the first women street artists.
Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour will be supported by several high-profile events and community projects taking place alongside the exhibition throughout the summer.
