David Malouf celebrates his 80th birthday

This is a big year for David Malouf – his 80th birthday, the release of his new book of poetry Earth Hour and a new book of essays and other writing entitled A First Place!

Here at the Museum an entire exhibition will be dedicated to this Brisbane treasure with David Malouf and friends, opening Friday 16 May. 5 contemporary artists will create new artworks inspired by Malouf’s work and he in turn will respond to their creations. With a substantial program of accompanying events, including appearances from David Malouf himself, the exhibition promises to be truly fitting celebration. Stay tuned for more details.
