16 weeks have come and gone. This Saturday is the final market of the season.
We ate the problem, we drank the problem, the music whiled our problems away, while the sun shone, the heavens hardly opened and that pesky breeze almost behaved itself.
We’ve got a little reserve left in the tank though, so for this weekend, we’re all about celebrating our market season with a Mad Hatter’s MoMa, where creative madness reigns supreme. And it is good.
This Saturday for MoMa’s last blast:
MAD HATTER’S PARTY
It’s the year of peering Through the Looking Glass at MONA, so we’re throwing a Mad Hatter’s Gin Party and picnic on the lawns. It’s a white-costumed affair with croquet on the lawns and bubbly prizes for the trippiest attire. Don’t be late!
THINKtent has been touring the state during Ten Days on the Island, providing an intimate, enclosed and exquisitely decorated space for thinking, talking and listening. This week, we have the provocateur behind it, Natasha Cica, in the Conversation Tent (she’s mad as a hatter, just like us). She may (or indeed may not) want to talk about whether Tasmania is at a tipping point, having just toured the nation with the GriffithREVIEW of the same theme, which she co-edited with Julianne Schultz.
Palawa artist Angie Abdilla takes us through the cultural looking-glass this Saturday with ‘Underworld’, which explores the notion of the ‘spectacle’ of two colliding worlds: travelling country showgrounds and Tasmanian Aboriginality.
Easter is not all about chocolate; it’s also about crowns and bunnies. Which is perfectly logical and not mad at all. So in the MoMa Minors tent, we’re having our very own mini masquerade. Decorate, adorn and be worn. And then stuff your face with chocolate.
DING DING! We’re kicking off some ringside action with a battle of the arts. Bring your art materials and enter our life drawing competition with heats ranging from 10-second poses to 15-minute studies. MoMa Draw Off will be a technical knock-out.
Art on Legs bring a performance art piece to MoMa, titled ‘Journeys’ which is a reflection on life’s connections. Wearable art. On legs.
