Banksy at the Moco Museum

While in Amsterdam over the weekend I was able to visit the Moco Museum's exhibition Banksy: Laugh Now. In my years of photographing street art around the world I have yet to run across any of Banksy's works. These are usually picked up quickly and fall into private collections. So I was really excited to see the exhibition at the Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum, a fairly new space located in the historic Villa Alsberg next to the Rijksmuseum.

The exhibition runs through 31 May 2017 and is currently paired with a Salvador Dali exhibition. It includes about 90 pieces of Banksy's artwork. Tickets were 12.50 Euros.
