Join us every Saturday as we look back on a week’s worth of Banksy murals and try to constructively make light of them, in retrospect.
— In retrospect, this week’s Banksy pieces in New York — including the September 11 tribute in Tribeca and his collaboration with Os Gêmeos in Chelsea — weren’t so recklessly preyed upon by vandals, though Trustocorp did have some derisive comments to make.
— In retrospect, after witnessing the beauty of paint placed in a speaker with the music cranked all the way up, we should not have attempted to do the same thing with milk and breakfast cereal — but we did, and it wasn’t pretty.
— In retrospect, we wish the artist-run Empire Drive-In movie theater — at the New York Hall of Science through October 20 — wasn’t a temporary installation.
— In retrospect, Hrag Vartanian’s talk on humor in art criticism was funnier than any art review we’re read all year.
