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).
