Exotic duality suggests a link between gauge theories for differential p -forms and tensor fields of mixed symmetry [ D − 2 , p ] in D spacetime dimensions. On the other hand, standard Hodge duality relates p -form to ( D − p − 2 ) -form gauge potentials by exchanging their field equations and Bianchi identities. Following the methodology and the recent proposal of Henneaux et al. that the double dual of the free graviton is algebraically related to the original graviton and does not provide a new, independent description of the gravitational field, we examine the status of exotic duality for p -forms. We find that the exotic dual is algebraically related to the standard dual of a differential form, and therefore they provide equivalent descriptions as free fields. Introducing sources then leads to currents being proportional. This relation is extended in a straightforward way for higher exotic duals of the mixed symmetry type [ D − 2 , … , D − 2 , p ] .
