Fifty Years of Patronage: The Frances Hodgkins Fellowship and its Impact on Contemporary Art in New Zealand
Joanne Campbell’s doctoral research explores the history and significance of the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. The Fellowship was the first artist-in-residence program established in New Zealand. Over the past fifty years, it has been awarded to some of New Zealand’s most highly regarded artists and in many cases it has had a considerable impact on their practice and on life at the University of Otago as well.
