Who doesn’t love a good freebie? Dark Mofo, you know how to treat us right.
The Museum of Everything
Mona’s new exhibition of art objects is the world’s first wandering institution for the untrained, unintentional, undiscovered and unclassified artists of the last few centuries. Entry to the museum is free for Tasmanians, and while registrations for the grand opening on Saturday 10 June are currently at capacity, you can still try your luck at the door. Plus, enjoy all the festivities on the ground – think art, flames, feasting and music!

Take a 200km pilgrimage along the Heritage Highway for Crossing, a multimedia lighting installation and performance event. Six churches between Launceston and Hobart will be progressively illuminated over six days with sound, light and olfactory art. The Launceston performance on the first night requires tickets, but the rest is free!

A different kind of playground – dark twists and turns, fears dissolved, mulled brews and food, eclectic art installations and fire. For free!

Homeland, memory and myth are explored in this wunderkammer (or cabinet of curiosities), of prints, projections, dioramas and constructed objects inspired by Jorges Luis Borges’ The Book of Imaginary Beings (1957). On display at the Rosny Barn.

In a poignant reminder of a forever lost existence, silent footage of the last known Tasmanian tiger will be projected upon TMAG’s historic Watergate Wall. A unique creature we will sadly never know.

You know that unsettling feeling like someone’s watching you? You get to be on the other side of it and become the watcher with this one. Head to the ground floor windows of the Centre for the Arts and stare until you see spines tingling.
