Newmarket to show famous Banksy work in major contemporary art exhibition Banksy Series of Record Sleeves

National Horse Racing Museum is one of summer show’s venues.

Visitors to Newmarket’s National Horse Racing Museum will be able to see Hula Hooping Girl by the celebrated street artist Banksy at a special exhibition this summer.

The Banksy work will appear as part of Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour, an exhibition of more than 300 works by 14 leading contemporary artists, including Damien Hurst, Tracey Emin, Blek le Rat, and Pure Evil. The exhibition, from 3 June-1 October, is being organised in association with Brandler Galleries and will be shown across three venues in West Suffolk, including Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill Arts Centre.

Hula Hooping Girl, which first appeared on the wall of a beauty salon in Nottingham in 2020, will be shown alongside Citroen Berlingo Van a vehicle painted with 200 eyes by the artist My Dog Sighs for Coventry Museum.

Hon Frances Stanley DL, Chairman of Trustees National Horse Racing Museum, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Brandler Galleries, Moyses Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill Arts Centre to bring vibrant street art to three venues across Suffolk.”

Tracey Harding, Manager of Discover Newmarket, said: “The National Horseracing Museum is an established location for viewing world-class sporting art, including works by the likes of George Stubbs and Sir Alfred Munnings. So it is very exciting to now be able to display works by contemporary artists such as Banksy and Damien Hirst, too. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with our neighbours in Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill to welcome a new crowd of visitors into the area.”

Newmarket is well established as a location for viewing world-class art being home to The National Horse Racing Museum’s Packard Galleries of British Sporting Art. The collection includes works by George Stubbs, Sir Alfred Mannings, Sir Peter Blake and Mark Wallinger.

Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour will be at the centre of a number of events and community projects taking place across West Suffolk.
