Huge Banksy artwork ‘Devolved Parliament’ goes back on display at Bristol Museum, 2019

Banksy just posted on his instagram page an image of Devolved Parliament declaring that the huge canvas is now back on display in the Front Hall of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery ten years later.

“Devolved Parliament I made this ten years ago. Bristol museum have just put it back on display to mark Brexit day.. Laugh now, but one day no-one will be in charge.” Banksy

The painting is back on display to mark 10 years since the Banksy versus Bristol Museum exhibition in 2009. The show attracted over 300,000 people and was one of the top ten most visited exhibitions anywhere in the world that year.

Devolved Parliament shows the houses of parliament with chimpanzees and is the artists’ largest work on canvas at 4m wide and 2.5m in height. The huge artwork is now on show for 6 months thanks to its owner who has kindly loaned it to the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.

Devolved Parliament will be on display at the Bristol Museum from the 28th March to the 1st September 2019. Entry is free and opening times are as follows…

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery opening times:
Tue-Sun: 10am-5pm
Closed Mondays except Bank Holiday Mondays and Mondays during Bristol school holidays: 10am-5pm
