MONA FOMA - MOFO
Hobart's MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Tasmania will be held January 18-22 , plus a few surprise events either side.
Curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break), MOFO 2017 will be held in Hobart city venues before a frenetic weekend at Mona (Jan 20-22).
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 2017 will show off Mona in unimaginable ways".
