Ralph Hotere Tribute

07 March 2013

A series of Ralph Hotere prints are being exhibited in the James Hight Library this week in a tribute to one of New Zealand's greatest artists who died on Sunday 24th February.

The 81-year-old sculptor, painter and collaborative artist, with a career spanning 50 years, had been suffering from pneumonia and passed away surrounded by family in Dunedin.

Hotere was a guest lecturer and artist-in-residence at University of Canterbury (UC) in 1984 where he collaborated with several printmakers at the School of Fine Arts to produce a number of etchings and lithographs.

The prints are displayed on Level two by the lifts.
