MONA | Museum of Old and New Art

Hobarts Museum of Old and New Art is located on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, and has become one of the most popular contemporary museums in the world.

MONA is situated within the Moorilla winery. It is the largest privately funded museum in Australia and presents antiquities, modern and contemporary art from the David Walsh collection. Walsh has described the museum as a "subversive adult Disneyland."

Officially opened on 21 January 2011, coinciding with the third MONA FOMA festival. The afternoon opening party was attended by 1,350 invited guests. 2,500 members of the public were selected by random ballot for the evening event which included performances by True Live, The Scientists of Modern Music, Wire, Health and The Cruel Sea.

2013 saw the introduction of Dark MOFO to the museums events calendar, the museums annual winter solstice festival.

The Museum of Old and New Art houses over 400 artistic works. Notable works in its inaugural exhibition, Monanism, include Sidney Nolans Snake, displayed publicly for the first time in Australia. Wim Delvoyes Cloaca Professional, a machine which turns food into excrement, Stephen Shanabrooks "on the road to heaven the highway to hell", remnants from suicide bomber cast in dark chocolate, and Chris Ofilis The Holy Virgin Mary.
