Turrell harnesses the numinous potential of light and space; kind of like what God would do if He decided to build a gazebo. We see Amarna as an elevation of the museum's hitherto subterranean ponderings of the human condition. If that sounds vague, that's because Turrell's art must be seen to be believed; or, perhaps, not seen, but believed nonetheless.

Amarna operates outside Mona's opening hours, at sunrise and sunset. No reservations will be taken - just turn up and let Turrell's perceptual spectacular unfold before your eyes. As nothing else will be open onsite, BYO thermals, snacks and bonhomie.

Please be aware that there is restricted access for people with mobility issues. Commercial photography is not allowed without prior permission from Mona.

 

The Golden Hour

Communal dining at Mona, brought to you by our Executive Chef Vince Trim. Soak up sunset courtesy of James Turrell's rooftop spectacular then retire to the Wine Bar for some top-notch tucker and flirty banter with the stranger on your left.

Set three-course menu $79 (add $50 for matched wines)
