The Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania has a peculiar name. Old art and new art add up to all art, so why not just call it the Museum of Art? But that would abbreviate to MA or MoA, neither perhaps being appropriate. The acronym is MONA and that’s what everyone calls it now, which is as it was meant to be.
MOMA in New York has a prefab exhibition on at the moment (July 20th to October 20th) that includes five specially erected houses in a vacant lot nearby. This website shows them off, and has a timeline of prefabs as well as installation videos.
