THE MOCO MASTERS - BANKSY, ARSHAM, KUSAMA AND MORE
A boutique museum overlooking Museumplein.
The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum with a wide range of inspiring modern and contemporary art, focuses on proven artists with a unique vision. With artists like Banksy, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, it is an unparalleled collection of subversive art in which irony and humour are used to reflect on modern society. A one-of-a-kind experience aimed at a wide audience, a visit to Moco is a true eye-opener.
Banksy. A mysterious British artist known for his humorous and political street art. The Banksy exhibition at Moco contains several of his infamous street pieces, as well a large number of his indoor works, including work on canvas. One of these is his giant ‘Beanfield’ painting, a beautiful piece which is displayed on the ground floor. An impossible-to-miss eye-catcher as you enter the Banksy exhibition. Other highlights include ‘Girl with Balloon’, ‘Laugh Now’ and ‘Keep It Real’.
Daniel Arsham. Arsham’s work is full of the unexpected: solid surfaces appear to bend and buckle, high-tech equipment looks like it’s existed for thousands of years. Unexpected is just how Arsham likes it; he challenges our perceptions of the physical world and what is possible within. Arsham seems to enjoy a paradoxical, sometimes dystopian, view of the past, present and future.
Yayoi Kusama at Moco Museum until 30 September 2019, the works ‘Night of Stars’ and ‘Pumpkin’ will be shown in a completely transformed space. The fascination of the globally popular Kusama for ‘Dot Art’ is reflected in her iconic style in which large polkadots play the leading role. In addition to her famous drawings, paintings and installations that show her polkadot specialism, Kusama is strongly committed to feminism and to sexism through her work.
