MONA FOMA is an annual festival based in Hobart, Tasmania, curated by Brian Ritchie bass player from the rock band Violent Femmes. It is billed as Tasmania’s largest contemporary music festival and showcases the work of artists in a broad range of art forms, including sound, noise, dance, theatre, visual art, performance & new media.
Lookout is the sixth project in a series partnered by CAST and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery which aims to promote contemporary Tasmanian artists. The exhibition displays nine artists at different stages in their careers; each looks outwards and responds directly to the world surrounding them. Demonstrating an awareness of a new internationalism in contemporary art practice, they create artworks that reference a divergent range of local and global issues including the environment, history, politics, knowledge systems and public spaces.
Curators: Michael Edwards, Jane Stewart
