On November 1st 2018, MOAM celebrated the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse in collaboration with Disney. For this magical milestone, MOAM selected 18 young artists to create art inspired by the iconic Mickey Mouse.

The opening of the Mickey Mouse exhibition took place in the Wintergarden of Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam. Concert pianist Wibi Soerjadi performed to pay a tribute to Mickey, and, especially for this spectacular occasion, Mickey Mouse came all the way from Disneyland Paris to surprise the guests with a performance from him and his jazz band. They played many popular Disney songs and closed the performance with an astounding drum solo.

The weekend following the grand opening, all the artworks of the eighteen selected artists were exhibited at the MOAM x MICKEY pop-up exhibition at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Over a thousand Disney and art lovers attended this three-day multidisciplinary event.
