Museum of Old and New Art Hobart 1

What an an extraordinary place. People had told me how wonderful it was, but seeing it first hand was indescribable.
The first image here is of a man called Tim  whose tattoo has been created and sold as a work of art. He has been paid, and a condition of his payment is that he must sit in the gallery for a number of days each year, and that his tattoo is the property of the collector who has bought it when he dies. Thsi was by Wim Delvoye.

Below is a library of blank books

This is a concrete mixer carved exquisitely from wood in the Thai tradition.
