Learn Space—the man behind the mask

02 March to 26 May 2019

The man behind the mask invited children of all ages to explore, respond and learn how Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series builds a strong narrative with particular emphasis on examining the living and working conditions for people in 19th century colonial Australia, and their significance as one of the greatest sequences of Australian paintings in the 20th century.

The Learn space included a creative activity designed to reimagine the Australian bushranger, Ned Kelly’s iconic helmet in an illustration created by Lewis Brownlie.
