Mona brings back triple bill exhibitions

From old heavenly icons to the sensory experiences inside a volcano, three major exhibitions will open in conjunction at Mona this September.

The Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) is living up to its name with three exhibitions opening in conjunction on 30 September.

The Museum will present its first ever exhibition of entirely ‘old art’ with Heavenly Beings: Icons of the Christian Orthodox World. More than 140 devotional objects will be on display, which, in Mona curator Jane Clark’s words, are both ‘a window into heaven’ and a ‘looking glass’.
