Would you like to be experimented on by Mona? The Hobart museum is shut until late 2020 at least, but owner David Walsh is opening Mona’s Faro restaurant for a series of delicious experiments before then. You and your fellow human guinea pigs will roll the dice on a mystery menu—a moveable feast, changing theme weekly—and explore parts of the dormant museum. The food, wine, live music, societal norms—David will experiment with the lot and you’ll need to sign a waiver absolving Mona from any charges of poor taste. Will you submit your body to The Faro Experiments?
Looking at the art used to be boring. It still is, maybe, but at least here at Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, you can get drunk and/or rage against the machine. Located just up the river from Hobart, Mona’s subterranean architecture showcases the highlights (and lowlights) of David Walsh’s $110m private collection of art and antiquities, as well as hosting a busy exhibitions program. Mona is also home to the Moorilla winery, Source Restaurant, bars, cafe, accommodation pavilions and more (plus Moo Brew, an off-site brewery).
For more information, please visit the Mona website.
