Miffy & Friends – QUT Art Museum
miffy & friends celebrates 65 years of an avant-garde design icon and much-loved children’s book character. The exhibition is a coup for QUT Art Museum which initiated and developed it, the first time the work of Miffy creator, Dutch illustrator Dick Bruna (1927-2017) has appeared in Australia. The free exhibition places Miffy alongside the work of seven of Australia’s most exciting contemporary artists who find the ideas encapsulated in Bruna’s figure as inspiration for their own artistic practice. Exhibition curator and QUT Art Museum Gallery Director Vanessa Van Ooyen, who led negotiations to bring the work here, said miffy & friends would be an opportunity for people to come together to share in the pleasures of art.
