mona foma

The MONA FOMA festival kicked off in Hobart over January.  FOMA is a new festival of music and art in Tasmania.  The festival is presented by the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), which is due to open in 2011.

Discord: Art from MONA presented French artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot's installation in the Long Gallery at the Salamanca Arts Space.  You can view a part of the work online here

Finches installation by Celeste

21:21:21 at the Long Gallery, 21 sound-bytes from artist/musicians around Australia.  Previously exhibited at Gertrude Street.  Philip Brophy's piece stood out the most in my opinion.
