Mofo is the Museum of Old and New Art’s Festival of Music and Art in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.
Throughout Mofo’s weekend at Mona, the MR-1 Fast Ferry will be transporting Mofos down river to Brooke St Pier to kick on in the city at Faux Mo after the museum site closes.
Faux Mo is Mofo’s late-night riot, taking over a disused, ex-government office space (12 Murray St, Hobart) from Friday 15 – Sunday 17 January 2016, 9pm till late.
The building will become a debauched disco lair for summer Mofos before its planned demolition next year, making way for Hobart’s forthcoming Parliament Square development.
Curated by Hobart locals James Walsh, Aedan Howlett and Jamin, in collaboration with Mofo Curator Brian Ritchie, Faux Mo highlights include the Jedi of turntablism, DJ Yoda (UK), bringing his cut-up cartoon beats to Friday night; New York purveyors of no-wave, James Chance and The Contortions (USA) bringing their jazz-inflected, punk-fuelled funk for some Saturday night fever; and Japan’s godfather of atmospheric hip-hop, DJ Krush, rounding off Sunday’s celebrations with his mad jazz and soul sampling sounds.
These total Mofos will be joined by a slew of national and local favourites amidst environs borne of electric dreams; created by artists including Jamin, Aedan Howlett, Lucy Benson, Scot Cotterell, Selena de Carvalho, Michaela Gleave, Joe Hamilton, Sean Healy, Jason James, Kit Wise, and 313RGB.
Fri 15 – Sun 17 Jan, 2016, 9pm – late
