This week we head into another remarkable collaboration, this time with dark metal superstar, Striborg. There are four performances happening at MONA in Tasmania to mark the opening of Ryoji Ikeda’s installation Spectra.

Striborg is an extraordinary artist at the creative and virtuosic end of the metal genre. He is originally from Tasmania, but has amassed a loyal international following particularly in Europe. He will be joined by Erkki Veltheim (electric violin), Peter Knight (trumpet / amplifier), Aviva Endea (contrabass clarinet), and Mindy Meng Wang (guzheng).

If you’re in Hobart for Dark MOFO, don’t miss these performances from Wednesday 21 to Saturday 24 June, 6.00-7.00 pm at the Organ Room Balcony at MONA.
