Hand in Hand: Photographers and Painters Alike, 8 December - 26 January 2019
Curated by Anna Petersen
Floor talk: on Saturday, 12 January at 11.00 a.m. curator Anna Petersen will give a floor talk on this exhibition.
A tribute to Frances Hodgkins (1869-1947) marking 150 years since her birth, this exhibition focuses on the artist’s early career in Dunedin during the 1890s. Featuring notable examples of her figurative painting alongside photographs taken by members of her close circle, Hand in Hand visually explores the part photography played in Hodgkins’ increasingly free-spirited work and demonstrates how photographers and painters united at the time in their desire to produce art.
