ART ON THE COUCH
May 9, 2019 7:00pm - 8:00pm talk/event
As part of London Craft Week 2019, the Freud Museum will be inviting artists Christie Brown and Barnaby Barford to explore the creative process in the production of their work, chaired by psychoanalyst Lesley Caldwell.
 
Both artists have formerly exhibited their work at the Freud Museum. Christie Brown’s solo exhibition in 2012-2013 entitled DreamWork was comprised of ceramic figures that responded to Sigmund Freud’s own collection of antiquities. Barnaby Barford contributed to a major in-house exhibition in 2018, Leaving Today: the Freuds in Exile 1938, where he produced a series of artworks with young survivors living in exile in London.
 
London Craft Week (8-12 May 2019) is an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers alongside celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands.
 
The Freud Museum’s participation aims to offer an interesting and unique contribution to the London Craft Week agenda, demonstrating the application of psychoanalysis to artistic creation. The Museum has an impressive repertoire of site-responsive exhibitions held in its unique space throughout its 33-year history.

Aug 7 - Oct 13, 2019
This new exhibition explores Freud’s enduring fascination with Egypt.
 
Freud was thinking about the archaeology of the mind in tandem with important developments in professional archaeology and Egyptology. This fascinating new exhibition will bring Freud into dialogue with his contemporary Flinders Petrie, the first UK Professor of Egyptology and enable us to compare their thoughts on archaeology and their respective collections of artefacts.
