Banksy’s latest exhibition, Dismaland, is certainly his most ambitious to date. The elusive artist has turned a dilapidated 2.5 acre seaside resort in Weston-super-Mare, England, into his version of a Disney theme park. And by his version I mean a provocative, sarcastic, wasteland created to be a scathing critique of consumerism and the depressing state of what we consider to be entertainment.
The park features 10 new works by the artist, including a sculpture that features Cinderella and her carriage post-accident, surrounded by paparazzi.

Vancouver’s Access Gallery, in partnership with Burrard Arts Foundation and Art Contraste, is looking to expand their travelling artist residency program, which launched in January of this year. Unlike typical residencies that offer space in a specific place, this one-of-a-kind project sends artists on a twenty-three day voyage aboard cargo ships sailing from Vancouver to Shanghai. The work that emerges from the selected artists’ experiences will be exhibited at Access Gallery and eventually compiled into a published book.

Until now, Shi zhu zhai shu hua pu (Manual of Calligraphy and Painting), was deemed too fragile to be opened, let alone viewed by the public. The 17th century compilation of 50 artists and calligraphers contains the first known instance of multicoloured printing ever, is reputed to be “the most beautiful” set of prints of its kind, and has just been made available through Cambridge University’s Digital Library.
