「ガスマスクの女性」バンクシー作 メトロポリタン美術館に1日展示

「NYの美術館に自画持参、名作の間にちゃっかり展示(読売新聞)
 【ニューヨーク】ニューヨークの4つの有名な美術館や博物館に、悪ふざけ画家の「作品」がこっそり持ち込まれ、数日間、だれも気づかないまま堂々と展示されていたことがわかった。犯人は「バンクシー」と名乗る英国人男性だが、正体は不明。狙われたのはメトロポリタン美術館、近代美術館、ブルックリン美術館とアメリカ自然史博物館。美術館には「ガスマスクの女性」やアンディ・ウォーホル風「トマトスープの缶」などの絵を展示。博物館には「翼とミサイル付きの本物の甲虫」を飾った。男は電話でロイター通信に、今月13日の開館中に仲間と協力して作品を持ち込み、名作の間に飾ったと語った。メトロポリタン美術館は1日で気づいたが、近代美術館は4日後だった。警備は厳しいはずだが、男は「どこも何かが持ち込まれるより、持ち出されることを警戒している」と“盲点”を指摘した。男は昨年もパリのルーブル美術館などで同じいたずらをしているという。」

ーーこういう「いたずら」は罪にはならないのでしょうか? 
しかし、作品を見ると笑えますね。作風と美術館の選択も良いです。
アンディ・ウォーホル風「トマトスープの缶」
だったら近代美術館で4日はバレないでしょう。
「どこも何かが持ち込まれるより、持ち出されることを警戒している」と“盲点”を指摘しているのも笑えます。
要するに、美術館の警備員は、出て行くものだけに目を光らし、入ってくるものは
注意してないのですね。(笑)

確かに、http://woostercollective.com/
これで見ると、ほとんど回りに人がいない。もちこんでも、さっさと壁にかけて、
おなじようなフレームと色見、作風だと分からないかもしれません。
こっちの美術館はのんびりしたものです。
バンクシーさんに言わせると、彼はアーチストでなく、"quality vandal" (質の良い破壊者?)だそう。
何でこんなことをしたかというと、「いろいろな美術館をうろうろしているうちに、『できる』と思ったので、やってみるべきだと思った。これらの美術館は、一部の億万長者のためのトロフィーの戸棚にすぎない。一般大衆は何のアートを見ているのか、実際は分かってない」。

ーこれは言えるかもしれない。私もモダンアートの作品をグッゲンハイムなどで見ているとき、消化器でも窓でも、壁に存在するものは全部「作品」に見てしまうことはある。要するに、美術館では「壁にあるもの=作品」とフツーの人は思ってしまいがちなのではないか?

美術館で疑われずに壁に作品をかけるて方法については、「フェイクのアゴ髭を生やして、タイミングを掴むんで動くこと」がポイントだそう。
アゴ髭は芸術関係者のシンボルなのだろうか?

グッゲンハイム美術館に作品を持ち込まなかった理由は、「2つのピカソ作品の間に置くつもりだったけど、バレずにすむような良い自作品がなかった」からだそうです。それほど傲慢な自信家ではないみたいですね。

Artist Hangs Fake Paintings in Top New York Museums
By RANDY KENNEDY, The New York Times


It was not nearly as dangerous as the time he sneaked into the elephant pen at the London Zoo and scrawled a graffiti message from the point of view of an elephant: "I want out. This place is too cold. Keeper smells. Boring, boring, boring."
Artist Pulls a Fast One on Museums

And it was not quite as elaborate as the stunt last year in which he spirited a stuffed rat wearing wraparound sunglasses into the Natural History Museum in London and mounted it on a wall.

But over the last two weeks, a shadowy British graffiti artist who calls himself Banksy has carried his own humorous artworks into four New York institutions - the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the American Museum of Natural History - and attached them with some sort of adhesive to the walls, alongside other paintings and exhibits. Similar stunts at the Louvre and the Tate museum have earned the artist - who will not reveal his real name - a following in Europe, where he has had successful gallery shows and sold thousands of books of his artwork. But his graffiti has also landed him in legal trouble.

Elyse Topalian, a spokeswoman for the Met, said that museum officials believed that a painting found there - a small, gold-framed portrait of a woman wearing a gas mask - was hung surreptitiously on March 13. Guards noticed it and removed it from a wall near other paintings in the American wing, she said. Ms. Topalian added that no damage had been done to the wall or to other artworks.

The museum does not look kindly on such unauthorized additions to its walls. "I think it's fair to say that it would take more than a piece of Scotch tape to get a work of art into the Met," Ms. Topalian said.

Sally Williams, a spokeswoman for the Brooklyn Museum, said a painting - in this case, of a red-coated colonial-era military officer holding a spray-paint can, with antiwar graffiti in the background - was discovered and removed on March 16. The painting was hung between two others from the museum's permanent collection in the American Identities galleries on the fifth floor. She said that the painting was now sitting in the museum's conservation lab and that its fate was uncertain.

"I think the immediate issue was just to get it out of the gallery and tucked away somewhere where it couldn't be seen," she said.

An official at the Museum of Modern Art said that a painting of a can of cream-of-tomato soup was found hanging in a third-floor elevator lobby and taken down on March 17. A spokesman for the Museum of Natural History, where the graffiti artist apparently hung a glass-encased beetle (a real one) equipped with fighter jet wings, missiles and a satellite dish, confirmed the incident by e-mail but did not say when the work was found.

Asked whether the incidents raised security concerns for them, officials at the institutions said no, adding that they believed that they had sufficient numbers of guards and other monitoring systems.

Pictures of the illicit art installations, apparently taken by an accomplice of Banksy, were posted yesterday at woostercollective.com, a site that has become a repository of pictures of graffiti and other street and urban art. Some of the pictures show a bearded man in an overcoat and hat, looking a little like Inspector Jacques Clouseau, hanging his paintings in the museums.

Marc Schiller, a founder of the Web site, said the pictures were sent to him yesterday along with a statement from the artist that said: "This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine-art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high-strength glue."

Mr. Schiller said the artist had returned to London and would not consent to a telephone interview. But in an e-mail exchange yesterday afternoon, conducted with Mr. Schiller's help, Banksy - who prefers to be called not an artist, but a "quality vandal" - said he decided to invade those four New York museums for a simple reason.

"I've wandered round a lot of art galleries thinking, 'I could have done that,' so it seemed only right that I should try," he wrote. "These galleries are just trophy cabinets for a handful of millionaires. The public never has any real say in what art they see."

He said he had entered all of the museums during normal visitors' hours. Asked how he was able to hang his works without being noticed by museum guards or security cameras, Banksy responded rather opaquely. "You just have to glue on a fake beard and move with the times," he said.

He added that he had thought about storming the Guggenheim, but was too intimidated. "I would have had to appear between two Picassos," he wrote. "And I'm not good enough to get away with that."
