Renegades or Heroes


03 August - 07 September 2003

The exhibition is based on a single painting from The Holmes à Court Collection, The Apotheosis of Ned Kelly by Donald Friend, that draws on social and political comment, identifying an iconic figure, in the person of Ned Kelly.

Invited participants from diverse backgrounds will contribute specific texts responding to the painting, providing personal commentary on the content as explained in the drawings produced by the artist as a key to the work.
