Dark Mofo: Resurrection

Winter is coming, and with it, Dark Mofo. Tasmania’s emblematic mid-winter solstice festival re-emerges from the darkness of COVID-19 in this year’s iteration titled Resurrection, exploring ideas of rebirth, reincarnation, and new life through large-scale public art, food, music, fire, light, noise, and naked swims in Hobart from 8 to 22 June.

View the work of over 100 Australian and international artists, including Bill Viola (USA), Doug Aitken (USA), and Hiromi Tango (Tweed Heads, NSW). Attend the Mona Up Late opening of three new major exhibitions: Jeremy Shaw (Canada), Fiona Hall (lutruwita/Tasmania) and AJ King (lutruwita/Tasmania bigambul/wakka wakka), and Robert Andrew (Brisbane Yawuru) at Mona, Museum of Old and New Art. Listen to the sounds of Sigur Ros’ Jónsi, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, UK space rockers Spiritualized and many more.
