A Visit to Moco

Near to the Rijksmuseum, there’s a much smaller gallery called Moco.

They had, and still have I think, a substantial exhibition dedicated to the work of Banksy. I found it immensely enjoyable. I think this Mickey Mouse swallowing constrictor was my favourite, but it was a close run thing.

There was another exhibition – which sadly looked more interesting on their web page than it did in reality.

They also had artworks from their permanent collection which I think had been selected as being precursors of Banksy or in some way relevant to his work. I seem to remember works by Warhol, Koons, and Lichtenstein amongst others.

I was more impressed by these paintings by Keith Haring…

Little S, meanwhile, not always a lover of art galleries, was very taken by this sculpture in the small garden outside…

  1. I’ve seen that gallery but never visited. Looks like one to add to the list next time we’re over there.
    The Keith Haring exhibition at the Tate in Liverpool was excellent. I think it finished early November, though.
