MONA FOMA - MOFO


Hobart's MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Tasmania will be held January 13-18 2016, plus a few surprise events either side.

The festival will be packed with music and art.
Mofo at Mona will be digging in deep; performances will resonate across the whole Mona site, inside and out; from the Nolan Gallery to the Organ Room; the Escher-esque stairwells to the Moorilla Barrel Room; and the outdoor stage and lawns to the sandstone Void, 14 metres underground.
"Mofo asks you to surrender to music, sound, sight and space", curator Brian Ritchie says. "Mona plus music creates one big pulsing organism. Whether you are a regular visitor or first-timer, Mofo 2016 will show off Mona in unimaginable ways".
