FUEL Festival - Double Portrait: Finding Frances Hodgkins
Date: Friday 6 July 2012
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Waikato Museum, Victoria Street
Jan Bolwell's critically acclaimed play about the intensely colourful life of New Zealand's most significant expatriate modernist painter of the 20th century, Frances Hodgkins.
Drama and excitement unfold when a stash of Frances Hodgkins paintings ends up in the hands of a Parisian gallery owner who has never heard of the artist. A female Auckland art gallery curator is determined to get them back to New Zealand.
Over shifts in space and time we observe Frances herself in a series of different relationships, all of which deeply influence her life and work.
