'If it is successful MONA should be irreverent, challenging and just plain cheeky. While not exactly anti-academic we are sidestepping academia to show that art can be comprehensible, entertaining, pointed or pointless but fun.. There is one more thing that I think is relevant - in these enlightened electronic days, everyone is a researcher. I don't think it's necessary to give you all the basic facts about the works, in the gallery or the book. If you want to know go Google. Instead, we're going to mess with your heads. The book is distilled Mona.' - David Walsh, founder of MONA (Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania)
