MONA, Hobart, Tasmania

October 27 to 30 2012

Join A+O for our inaugural art tour to MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art - one of the great contemporary art experiences in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Earlier this year A+O's Hamish Coney travelled to Hobart to visit MONA - he describes MONA as one of the most incredible art museums he has ever seen, 'MONA is both an architectural wonder, hewn from the sandstone cliffs on the Derwent River and a magnificent collection of large scale contemporary artwork -signature works by Damian Hirst, Wim Delvoye, Paul McCarthy, Chris Ofili, Anselm Keifer, Jannis Kounellis and Francis Upritchard are displayed alongside priceless Egyptian Mummies and antiquities. It is referred to as the museum of sex and death and once you've seen the collection and the incredible structure that is MONA you'll be left breathless.'

MONA also stages international curated exhibitions - during the A+O tour we will be able to view not just the MONA collection but also the major exhibition Theatre of the World curated by Jean-Hubert Martin.

A+O has teamed with Glen Armstrong Art Tours from House of Travel to tailor a tour for New Zealand art fans to experience MONA and the cuisine and charm of Hobart. When you see the itinerary you'll see that MONA is much more than art museum.  Only 15 places on the MONA tour are available so please register your interest at your earliest convenience.
