Picture of Re-imagining the Laws of England Tour - Celebrating Magna Carta

Artists from across the UK participated in the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta.

A set of `Halsbury's Statutes`, the accepted authoritative texts for statute law (Acts of Parliament) of Engalnd and Wales, was donated to the Sidney Nolan Trust by a local court service whose staff now use online reference. The 27 volumes were destined to be pulped had the Trust not taken them.

Each volume has been transformed into a work of art exploring themes related to topics covered in the particular volume as well as ideas around legislation and society.
