The Grigoryan Brothers
SATURDAY 8 AUGUST, 7.30PM
THE NOLAN GALLERY
Classical guitar with a Sidney Nolan backdrop. Slava Grigoryan returns to Mona, but this time with his clever sibling Leonard in tow. Together, they'll perform songs both old (classical standards) and new (their latest album, This Time), including arrangements and compositions inspired by Latin, jazz, folk, contemporary and beyond. Classy as.

MOMA: MONA MARKET
Returns January 2016
Lead by MoMa's inimitable First Lady Kirsha Kaechele and her posse of wondrous winged monkeys, the market's fourth outing invites you to revel in the glorious sun-drenched agora (aka the MONA lawns), quaff delicious rainbow unicorn urine cocktails and get up close and personal with your lunch - sourced from a tasty-as selection of pop-up chow and bevvy vendors - before doing battle in a cultural dance-off (ballroom vs. break, ballet vs. krump) or letting your groove thang loose to MoMa's weekly musical marvels. Feel dem summer feels!
