Moco stelt Banksy’s vrijstaande muurschildering ‘Heart Boy’ vanaf vandaag geheel kosteloos tentoon aan alle voorbijgangers van het Museumplein in Amsterdam, waar het museum gelegen is. Nog nooit eerder werd er een street piece van de activistische kunstenaar geplaatst in Amsterdam.

Banksy: Laugh Now

April 9, 2016 until December 31, 2016

Warhol: Royal

April 9, 2016 until October 1, 2016

Step into the world of Banksy and Warhol. Explore the works by these two icons in Moco Museum in Amsterdam, featuring masterpieces such as Beanfield by Banksy and Marilyn by Andy Warhol

Banksy: Laugh Now

On the ground floor you will find the elaborate Banksy “Laugh Now” exhibition. The exhibition contains around 50 original works by Street Art-legend Banksy. For the first time in history there is a Banksy exhibition in a museum.

The main piece during this exhibition is the painting “Beanfield”, which is 2,5 x 3,5 meters. This piece has not been on display since 2009.

Moco museum is displaying all his famous works like Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Pulp Fiction, Flower Thrower, Monkey Queen, Kate Moss, Bomb Hugger, Soup Can and many more.The main piece during this exhibition is the painting “Beanfield”, which is 2,5 x 3,5 meters. This piece has not been on display since 2009. A very important canvas that characterises Banksy as an activist artist. Banksy is well known for his outdoor art. You can find his pieces of street art all around the world. In London you can even buy maps marking the locations where you can find these pieces of art, which are mostly protected. Not everyone knows that Banksy also makes art for indoors. Original and unique works on canvas, wood and paper.

At Moco museum you will find his indoor art, owned by collectors who bought these pieces at Banksy’s exhibitions in the past. There are also a few pieces at Moco that were rescued from the rubble of buildings that were torn down.


Warhol: Royal

On the lower ground floor you will find the exhibition “Royal” by Pop Art-protagonist Andy Warhol. More than twenty years after his death Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture.

"Warhol: Royal" Exhibition by Warhol in Moco Museum Amsterdam
Warhol’s life and work inspires creative thinkers worldwide thanks to his enduring imagery and artfully cultivated celebrity. A skilled (analog) social networker, Warhol parlayed his fame, one connection at a time, to the status of a globally recognized brand. Decades before widespread reliance on portable media devices, he documented his daily activities and interactions on audio and tape. Warhol captured life’s every minute detail in all its messy, ordinary glamour and broadcast it through his work, to a wide and receptive audience.

In Moco you will find his love for Celebrities and Royals. In original and silkscreen works you will learn about his favorite things in life, such as shoes and of course his Campbell soup, which is on display next to Banksy’s Tesco soup.

Moco About

Moco about Created with Sketch.

The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum Amsterdam wants to make a wide range of modern and contemporary art available to the general public. Moco Museum focuses on proven pioneers and protagonists , the so-called ” Rock Stars of Art” within various art movements. With exciting exhibitions and high-profile guest curators, Moco fulfils the need of a large audience. The wish to take a glance in to the art world which is usually hidden to the public.

Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum Amsterdam

The museum is located in Villa Alsberg, which is set in the middle of the Amsterdam Museumplein. This townhouse was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, cousin of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who was responsible for the Rijksmuseum, which is on the opposite side of the square. The restyling of all the quarters was done by Studio Piet Boon. Within the museum you will find a museum shop and it is possible to host events there.

The museum is a private initiative of gallery owners Lionel and Kim Logchies, and the artworks are made available by their carefully accumulated international network. A part of the earnings will be donated to charities that are close to the couples hearts.

For decades Lionel and Kim Logchies worked with renowned artists like Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Picasso and Salvador Dali. But they have also developed a big interest in the up and coming Street Art movement and they keep themselves up to date about all novelties within the underground scene, led by the new Warhol of the street art, Banksy. Names that will follow are Os Gemeos, KAWS and Maya Hayuk.
