Artgaze Film Club Event: Banksy Does New York!

Published On May 8, 2016 | By Samantha Mant | Artgaze, documentaries, Films


On the 22nd of April, under a full moon, the cool cats of Townsville and beyond gathered at Umbrella Studio, to enjoy Artgaze Film Clubs screening of the documentary ‘Banksy Does New York’.



Needless to say it was a hit! We had one of our biggest audiences yet since screening Warwick Thorton’s The Darkside in 2014, which probably says a lot about the positive shifting of ideas on street art and the artists themselves that create it.

Guests were greeted and satiated by Artgaze Pop Up Bar’s signature cocktails and the sounds of our Pop Up Vinyl collection.

Prior to the feature screening, event host Shane Keen presented selected Independent graffiti shorts, demonstrating the art culture of local street art,  to whet our appetite for Banksy.
