MONA FOMA - MOFO
Hobart's MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Tasmania will be held January 12-22.
The MOFO 2018 festival, curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break), will kick-off in Launceston (12-14 Jan) before moving to Hobart (15-22 Jan). In Hobart, events will be held in city venues before a frenetic weekend at Mona (Jan 19-21).
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 2018 will show off Mona in unimaginable ways".
Tickets on sale from 16 October.
