The opening exhibition contains David Walsh's favourite works; the ones that represent him and present him to the world for interest, outrage or indifference. From July 19, 2011, Monanism will begin to evolve, and new works will continue to be added. Just as David promised. The vision is unconstrained by any desire to demonstrate artistic chronology, or by a neutral environment for the works. In fact, David hopes to provide a counterpoint to public galleries that are (and should be) warehouses of the history of art. David hopes to shock and offend, as well as challenge, inform and entertain. In his own estimation his collecting is obsessive. At MONA, he has the luxury of creating his ideal amalgam of everything he enjoys most in other museums he has visited around the world: a cross section of art that is driven by polemics as much as aesthetics.
