MONA is a magical place. This is one of my favourite places in Tasmania, and at only 3 hours travel away it’s not too difficult to visit. What is MONA? Art gallery, museum, winery, brewery, restaurant, music venue and home for the owner. The owner, David Walsh, has called it a ‘subversive adult Disneyland”, and the eclectic collections displayed are both fascinating and challenging – the sign of good art. A new exhibit (The Origins of Art) opened recently and I was lucky enough to be able to take a friend down for opening day. This exhibit is a conversation with four scientists about the role of art in the world. They don’t necessarily agree with each other, but they certainly allow us to join that conversation as we walk though.
