GUEST CURATOR, ALLISON HOLLAND
Discover a passionate film-maker - admire a screen legend - celebrate a local hero

Film legend Heath Ledger was a charismatic movie star who pushed the boundaries of acting in his iconic roles. This unique exhibition has been curated in collaboration with his family and close friends. From his teenage years in Western Australia to his final role as Tony in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009), the exhibition follows a career driven by the actor's passion for creativity.

Ledger worked with some of cinema's great directors, actors and crews to achieve unforgettable performances in a range of genres. Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures will celebrate his screen career with the display of costumes, including the Joker suit from The Dark Knight (2008), and the iconic shirts of Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist from Brokeback Mountain (2005).

On display for the first time, will be Ledger's research journals revealing the actor's deep commitment to his profession and how he developed key roles. Awards such as his Best Supporting Actor Oscar and BAFTA for The Dark Knight highlight his achievements in the film industry. Ledger's celebrity status is reflected in portraits by noted international photographers such as Karin Catt, Platon and Bruce Weber.

A chronological narrative of his acting career will be intertwined with his creative investigations into image-making under the influences of visionary directors Ang Lee, Terry Gilliam and Todd Haynes. Photographic stills and moving images will offer a glimpse of Ledger behind-the-scenes and reveal his creative projects as a director.
