Banksy’s Cut & Run – The public can choose where the exhibition goes in Glasgow

During the last weekend of the exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art, people queued for hours, but thoughts are already turning to the next step.

Now the artist is giving fans the chance to have a say in where Cut & Run lands.

Cut & Run presents 25 years of stencil graffiti – ends Monday 28th August after box office records were broken during its ten week run.

A crowd of 180,000 people flocked to GoMA in the city’s Royal Exchange Square, many of them arriving outside of normal opening hours as Cut & Run was the first all-night exhibition in the gallery’s history.

GoMA Manager Gareth James said: “Cut & Run has welcomed a new and diverse audience, from elementary school students to octogenarians, from all walks of life and all parts of the world. Every day we open our doors to queues of hundreds of people waiting for tickets.

“Free community tickets and overnight hours have expanded the reach of the museum well beyond our usual scope.”

The notoriously camera-shy artist controversially banned the use of phones in the exhibition.

Mr James added: “We expected some resistance but in fact visitors have embraced the no-phone rule; I enjoy the time and space to be able to view the work unhindered.”

While future shows at GoMA will benefit directly from the sale of Banksy merchandise, the artist is apparently unsure if Cut & Run himself will walk and run.

The official website claims the organizers have no idea where the exhibition might be held next and is asking the public for suggestions.

The website has already changed to show that the run is coming to an end.

A message on the website reads: “Thank you Glasgow it was a blast.”

“We want to get this show on tour but have no idea where to go next. Or?

“Send us your suggestions and attach some pictures if possible. A specific place or venue would be ideal, please don’t just write ‘Come to Iran!’
