Banksy Rumored To Launch “Dismaland” Pop-Up Exhibition
Famed street artist Banksy is rumored to be launching a new pop-up exhibition, directly aimed at Disney. Called Dismaland, the mock-themepark has been constructed at the abandoned 10,200-square-foot Tropicana site in Weston-super-Mare, Bristol.
The rumors of Banksy's involvement began to swirl when his manager Holly Cushing was spotted at the Dismaland site earlier this month. Along with that financial records show that Cushing registered a company earlier this year called Dismaland Ltd with Banksy's rumored accountant Simon Durban. After further research, others recognized the Dismaland name from some of Banksy's past stencil work.
Just like the rest of the artist's work, Dismaland is currently shrouded in secrecy. However the exhibition is rumored to open this weekend.
