Museum of Old and New Art

In January 2011 Australian collector and philanthropist David Walsh opened up Australia’s largest private museum: the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona).

Located on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, Tasmania, the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) displays the diversity of Walsh’s private art collection that ranges from ancient to modern to contemporary art, featuring artists such as Erwin Wurm, Gelitin, Anselm Kiefer, Christian Boltanski, Wim Delvoye or Brigita Ozolin to name but a few.

Here on IC, the passionate collector shares a selection of pieces that are on permanent view and are well worth a trip down under.
