Sidney Nolan's 'Ned Kelly' series

For the first time in 15 years, the National Gallery of Australia’s collection of Sidney Nolan’s ‘Ned Kelly’ paintings is touring Australia in its entirety.

The tour spans four states and one territory including a visit to Geelong with Geelong Gallery the exclusive Victorian venue.

The national tour gives Australians across the country the chance to experience some of the most famous and poignant masterpieces of 20th century Australian art.

While the Kelly paintings have been exhibited internationally at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, they have rarely visited the far corners of Australia.

‘It is essential that all Australians have equal opportunity to access these remarkable works,’ said Dr Gerard Vaughan, NGA Director.

‘By experiencing this iconic group of paintings with their radical style, and anti-establishment mythology firsthand, new generations gain insight into the work of one of our most well-known artists.’

From 1946-47, Nolan developed an original and starkly simplified image of Ned Kelly, which quickly became a national symbol—part of the shared iconography of Australia.

The NGA acquired its first Ned Kelly work from the series in 1972, Death of Sergeant Kennedy at Stringybark Creek 1946. In 1977, Sunday Reed donated to the NGA 25 of the 27 paintings from Nolan’s first exhibited Kelly series. Together, these 26 paintings provide a masterclass on Australian art history and the development of a new figuration and landscape painting in Australian art.

Jason Smith, Director & CEO, Geelong Gallery says “This exhibition will be immensely popular with the Greater Geelong community and a major drawcard for visitors to our great city and region. Following the success of the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ 2017 Archibald Prize and upcoming 2018 Archibald Prize, we look forward to presenting this major exhibition to the community. We are also thrilled about the educational opportunities and our ability to continue to demonstrate the capacity and audience reach of Geelong Gallery.”

City of Greater Geelong Mayor, Bruce Harwood says “The City of Greater Geelong is pleased to support Geelong Gallery in its hosting of this iconic exhibition through Geelong Major Events funding. Bringing this internationally significant work to Geelong is another drawcard for the city and supports our vision of a clever and creative city-region.”

This travelling exhibition is supported by the Australian Government through Visions of Australia and the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program.
