It's only a matter of 24060 seconds now until one of the most exciting new museums will open its gates: The Museum of Old and New Art in, yes, Tasmania with their inauguration group show Monanism.

Already on show is Chiharu Shiota's In Silence - a breathtaking installation of a burnt-out piano frozen in time and suspended in space.

A preview of their Monanism opening show is not yet online but I do know that my friend Julia deVille (of Disce Mori fame) and Claire Morgan will be exhibiting amongst many, many others.

The latter, Claire Morgan, seems to have successfully broken the space/time continuum and will also be exhibiting her new solo show Under the Sun at Galerie Karsten Greve in Cologne.

Sadly, only the drawings are available for preview online yet, but:

"Claire Morgan has worked on ten new installations and twelve related drawings"
