Alan Hodgetts/Manzo (1962 – 2022) memorial exhibition

Big Kid is a fundraising exhibition featuring the multimedia works of Alan Hodgetts, and his musical alias ‘Manzo’.

The exhibition will be held from Friday 9 June through to Sunday 18 June at The Light Space gallery, Academy Galleries, Wellington – Home of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.

Alan Hodgetts working on “The Eve of Ravenswood”

100% of the profits from all sales will be donated to the Mary Potter Hospice. This exhibition was one of Alan’s last wishes. He wanted to give back to the organisation that had provided such support and kindness during his illness.

Alan was an experimental multi-media visual artist and musician and this exhibition will showcase his many styles and talents.

Alan was a big man, with a big talent and sense of humour, and was very much a ‘big kid’ at heart.
