This is MONA’s latest exhibition where you can enjoy the work of alternative artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. ‘The Museum of Everything is the world’s first and only wandering institution for the untrained, unintentional, undiscovered and unclassifiable artists of modern times’.

Pippa Mott MONA Curatorial assistant will speak with attendees about the exhibition. There will be a Q & A with an opportunity to discuss the exhibition and what is coming up next at MONA. It is recommended that where possible you view the exhibition before the Q & A, but there will be time to revisit the show after this session.
Associate Professor Penny Edmonds will address the group. She has a museum and academic background, and a specialty in Aboriginal-settler histories of contact, conciliation, and violence. Penny will speak in particular about the need to teach Australian and Aboriginal history in alignment with the national curriculum, and exciting pathways to do this through objects. Penny’s research explores how hidden historical objects from our frontier past can offer fresh perspectives in rethinking and writing colonial history (you can learn more about this aspect of Penny’s work via her Conversation piece ). Penny will draw from a range of objects she has written about over the years to speak to these topics, as well as ways to broach the more serious topic of settlement/invasion debates for older students.
This special event represents a valuable Professional Learning opportunity for TATA members to engage with ideas and artworks and catch up with colleagues in an inspiring setting.
