MACA Museum

Take a cultural excursion to MACA, a museum of modern contemporary art where, among other iconic names, you can experience a Banksy exhibition that offers a revealing and fascinating insight into the anonymous Bristol street artist's early years.

In a building with a lot of history, an old 19th-century warehouse on Toldbodgade in the heart of Copenhagen with Nyhavn as its neighbour, you can take a cultural excursion at the newly opened MACA Museum - a museum of modern contemporary art where you can experience inspiring works from iconic and established artists, but also new and emerging ones.

Warhol, Basquiat, Banksy, RETNA, KAWS, Haring, Koons, Hirst, Emin and Kusama. These are just some of the names of the artists whose works are exhibited at MACA, which is privately owned by British collector Nigel Mead.

The museum's Banksy exhibition in particular is generating a lot of interest and excitement among Copenhageners interested in art and culture. Banksy is a famous but anonymous British street artist and activist. He may be mostly known for his graffiti drawings on walls and public places that appear sporadically around the UK. Although Banksy's identity is not yet known by the public, it is known from his book publications that he began his career in Bristol. His work is often satirical and contains strong political and social commentary, making him an intriguing and controversial artist in the eyes of many.

At MACA, you can get an insight into the mysterious artist at the exhibition "Banksy & Street Art: The Early Years": an exhibition of rare drawings, stencils, photographs and paintings that provide a fascinating and revealing insight into Banksy's early working methods and creative processes.

When you're full of artistic impressions, you can enjoy a refreshment at the museum café located in the building's courtyard. The museum is located in the centre of Copenhagen, right by Nyhavn and close to Amalienborg Palace, the Marble Church and other iconic buildings, so if you want to continue your cultural excursion, you're in the right area with a visit to MACA.
