  • Exhibitions and Shows (18)
    1. 62nd Blake Prize Touring Exhibition Since 1951, the Blake Prize has been awarded to a work that addresses a subject of religious or spiritual integrity. The Prize allows artists to respond to the theme with works that generate an ongoing conversation about what matters most in contemporary culture what we believe in and how we interpret our humanness. Each year the Blake receives over 1000 entries from artists around Australia using any media or approach.
    2. Asylum by Roger Ballen - Mona Roger Ballen is what you'd call a 'wound opener'. Working with black and white film, Ballen's photography sheds light on the darker side of the human self - a scab that most of us would perhaps rather leave untouched. He describes his work as fundamentally psychological and existential; for him, making art is an exercise in defining himself. His photography also incorporates drawings, sculptures, and a photographic drawing technique developed by Ballen himself. Ballen is at MONA to exhibit work from his Asylum and Apparitions series.
    3. Australian Native Beasts and Birds An exhibition of fibre based crafts from artisans across Australia. Presented by The Spindle Tree and Salamanca Arts Centre.

    6. Disclosed - a performance in three cells In 1849, the Separate Prison at the Port Arthur commenced operation. Under the Separate System, prisoners were kept completely isolated and speech was forbidden. The prison was designed to reform the colonys most rebellious convicts, but all prisoners at Port Arthur spent time there, with some detained for several years. During its operation, the Separate Prison stood as an architectural and social innovation. It was the model for a modern prison system based on surveillance, self-control and non-violent practices. It wasnt until later that its devastating psychological effects were fully realised. Trapped between whitewashed walls, prisoners only place to go was within themselves. Disclosed opens the doors to convicts personal worlds-small and square, but housing infinite dreams. A violin is played, a baby is held, a wife is lost. These are the stories that do not appear in prison records. Told with despair and humour, horror and tenderness, Disclosed is about imagined acts of escape in a place of extreme deprivation. It is about the places we all go to connect with humanity and ultimately, to survive.
    7. Dog's Day Out Dogs are special members of our families and Clarence Council dedicates a day to them at the Rosny Farm. Featuring agility competitions, dress-ups, visiting vets and the Poochibald Art Prize, Dogs Day Out also offers a barbecue and live music to entertain the whole family.
    8. Hubert Duprat - Mona Meet Hubert Duprat. This French artist is an enigma of the best possible variety. He conducts experiments - not necessarily to solve problems or to test hypotheses - that poetically investigate the border between art and science. Fundamental questions for Duprat include 'what is art?' and 'what is an artist?' and his interests extend to geology and archaeology, as well as the natural sciences. Here at MONA - in his first solo exhibition in Australia - Duprat's intriguing approach will be on full display. This exhibition will see him use natural magnets, crystals sculpted by microscopic atomic arrangement, Neolithic flint-knapping techniques and synthetic substances invented by modern industry. He's also continuing his iconic decades-long work with the caddisfly. He'll enlist live indigenous caddisfly larvae (a freshwater aquatic insect) to decorate their silk body-cases with gold spangles and jewels instead of the usual pebbles, twigs and sand. Which begs the question: who's the artist here - human or insect?
    9. Insight Radical - Conversations on Art and Science Join us for an evening of wine & nibbles to discuss INSIGHT RADICAL: where science meets art in conversation with scientist Dr RENEE BEALE and Winsor & Newton resident artist NATALIE OCONNOR.

    14. Museum of Old and New Art - The Red Queen The Red Queen is a character from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass. She's a sinister mixture of power and futility: even as she doles out orders willy-nilly, she seems to lock herself in a weird and lonely prison of words: 'What's the French for fiddle-de-dee?'
    15. Oktoberfest Hobart We invite you to share in one of the oldest and most loved festival traditions in the world and embrace your inner German.

At this year's show you will be able to see a wide range of attractions, activities and animal exhibitions and judging that celebrates Tasmania's agricultural industries as well as well your love for domesticated pets such as cats and dogs.
    18. Soliloquies from forgotten dreams Soliloquies from forgotten dreams explores the fragmented memories of dreams, in the transition between sleep and wakefulness. Sleep, so often depicted as restful and calm, is paradoxically a time when our imagination is at its most vibrant and intense. These works by Emily Blom, which combine painting, printmaking and collage, balance between realism and abstraction, as if they exist in some unknown state between the present and the past, fiction and fact.
