Extensive Banksy art exhibit may lack one major detail: insurancePosted On: Nov. 26, 2018 11:20 AM CST
It appears Banksy’s famous “Girl With Balloon,” on display in Belgium until Thursday, did not come with insurance.
Belgian police seized work by the British street artist after an exhibitor showing them discovered the art might not be insured, BBC News reported Saturday.
About 60 pieces worth about €15 million ($17 million) were on display in an empty supermarket space in Brussels when the exhibitor informed authorities the art might not be covered in case of damage or theft, according to the network.
The display called “Banksy Unauthorised” is reported to have been arranged without the artist's involvement and was being shown by Belgian exhibitor Strokar, according to the news report.
The art includes paintings, photos and silkscreens in a collection put together by Banksy's former agent, Steve Lazarides, according to the report.
