The power of words

From Standing Room Only, 2:50 pm on 7 May 2017

An exhibition called Freefall is Dunedin's famous Hocken Collection's contribution to the city's Writers and Readers Festival this week. It's a tribute to words - with paintings by Colin McCahon and Ralph Hotere, of course - but also historic documents and letters, a Block Map from 1844 and Flying Nun posters from the 1980s. Simon Morris talks with the Head Curator of the Hocken's Pictorial Collection, Robyn Notman. The exhibition Freefall opened at Dunedin's Hocken Gallery yesterday, and the Gallery is open every day except Sunday from 10 o'clock.
