MONA’s curated a day’s worth of art, party and speakers, and everyone’s invited.
This November the Arts community is celebrating some of the most heralded art events, the G20 in Brisbane and The Australian Design Biennale in Hobart.
It’s only fitting that MONA, one of the leading Art institutions in the country, host an event that celebrates this important time in the art calendar, offering what we all really want – Art. Open Bar. Party.
The day offers 2 separate events, with the Creative Forum (aka the D20) starting off the celebrations, hosting 15 creative Mavericks to speak about ‘crossing the line’ and The Party a congregation of art lovers and ravers alike, with first hour of the party being open bar, and the next 5 letting you get all kinds of crazy with an amazing lineup of new homegrown acts.
