With a subterranean building and an excess of controversial art (heavy emphasis on the scatological) Tasmanian mathematician and professional gambler David Walsh is opening the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) just outside Hobart, Tasmanian. Mona will exhibit works as diverse as Anselm Kiefer’s lead books and Wim Delvoye’s "Cloaca" machine (which will apparently be perfuming the air as it "digests" beef carcasses from a Jannis Kounellis installation). The Art Newspaper has a feature on Walsh and his museum.
