Project X; a Tasmanian Art Installation
The group behind Tasmania’s successful winter festival Dark Mofo has commissioned a large-scale, permanent artwork at Ida Bay in the state’s south to draw tourists back to the area.
The artwork is part of Project X, an artistic initiative by DarkLab aimed at bringing visitors back to the Huon Valley after devastating 2019 bushfires. It’s been announced that the artwork will be the creation of American artist Doug Aitken, whose work has been displayed around the world.
To discuss the project along with the future of Dark MOFO was Dark labs creative director, Leigh Carmichael.
