Freefall includes important works of art from the Hocken Pictorial collections, combined with gems from the Hocken’s holdings of archives, books, ephemera, maps and music, and significant works of art from the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Special Collections at the University of Otago Library. Freefall offers an opportunity to explore connections between these collections, the creative relationships between artists and writers, and to investigate notions about the look, use and role of image, narrative, words and text in art and print-based media. Predominantly an art exhibition, Freefall features paintings by some of New Zealand’s most important artists, including Colin McCahon, Ralph Hotere and Joanna Paul.
