- Visit the first Banksy exhibition ever to hit a museum and see classics like Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, plus original works for indoors
- See 'Royal' - an exhibition of work by Pop Art-protagonist Andy Warhol, including the famed Campbell's Soup, on display next to Banksy’s response, Tesco Value Soup
- Skip the line for even more time in Moco - Amsterdam's newest and coolest museum of Contemporary Art
See soup cans like you've never seen them when you step into the world of Banksy and Warhol. This show is a double exhibition whammy in Amsterdam's newest and coolest museum. See more than 50 of original Banksys in context next to works by another artworld trailblazer: Andy Warhol. See silkscreens and originals from the Pop Art legend, and see the influence Warhol had on the wry street art phenom.
The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum Amsterdam is located inside Villa Alsberg, a townhouse that dates back to 1904, bang in the heart of Amsterdam Museumplein. On the ground floor 'Banksy: Laugh Now' is the first Banksy exhibition to be shown in a museum. It's also a rare chance for a glimpse at his painting Beanfield, which before this, hadn't been displayed anywhere since 2009.
Famed street art pieces Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Pulp Fiction, Kate Moss and Soup Can are all here, as are a number of original indoor works you may not have seen before. You can even see works that were rescued from the rubble of demolished buildings, which gives you an idea of how valuable they are. (Imagine someone going through wreckage for your art!)
On the lower ground floor, the exhibition 'Royal' walks you through Pop Art-protagonist Andy Warhol's love of celebrities and royals, over 20 years after his death.
When it comes to contemporary art and throwing a different spin on culture, it's pretty hard to beat these brilliant iconoclasts.
