Current exhibitions at the Modern and Contemporary Museum Amsterdam
The Modern and Contemporary Museum Amsterdam, Moco for short, has enjoyed international success thanks to its unique exhibition of works by street artist Banksy. A large part of Banksy’s most famous pieces are exhibited: Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with the Balloon and Flower Thrower. The Modern and Contemporary Museum Amsterdam is the first museum in the world to exhibit his work in a formal setting. The exhibition, titled Laugh Now, contains 50 of his most influential works. Also in The Modern and Contemporary Museum Amsterdam art of pop-art icons Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein have been on display, but the current exhibition A moment of clarity is one of the up-and-coming street artists ICY & SOT. Their amazing pieces talk about relevant topics like environmental, political and economic issues.
The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum has made its home in Villa Alsberg, a townhouse overlooking Museumplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The building was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, nephew of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who designed Amsterdam’s Central Station and the Rijksmuseum, which is at the opposite end of the square. This privately-owned residence was one of the first family homes built along Museumplein and retained this function until 1939. Subsequently, the house was let to priests who taught at the Saint Nicolas School in Amsterdam, and later it was converted into an office for a law firm.
No effort is spared to ensure that this breathtaking mansion makes an impact on visitors, adding an extra layer to the Moco experience. There is one small drawback, though: charming as the building is, its compact size does mean it can feel crowded during peak hours.
The Moco Museum is a private initiative of Lionel and Kim Logchies. The exhibited works of art are on loan from their carefully cultivated international network of art collectors. Part of the proceeds from the museum will be donated to charities that are close to the hearts of the initiators.
