Gain unique insight to the work and life of trailblazing New Zealand artist Frances Hodgkins through this three-week lecture series presented in partnership with the University of Auckland.
Mary Kisler, Senior Curator, Mackelvie Collection, International Art, has been working on the exhibition Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys since 2013, and will share many stories about the artist with wit and enthusiasm. The Gallery’s Research Library Manager Catherine Hammond and Librarian/Archivist Caroline McBride will discuss their extensive research on Hodgkins, and Principal Conservator Sarah Hillary will shine a light on the techniques and materials used by the painter.
Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys traces Hodgkins’ creative and peripatetic life, from her upbringing in Dunedin, through France, Morocco and Spain to her final days in England, examining the influence of location on her development as a modernist painter and the notion of travel and journeying as a source of artistic inspiration.
