Join Johanne Mullan, Collections, IMMA, for an insightful walkthrough of the exhibition IMMA Collection, Freud Project: Gaze. No need to book in advance, just come to the Meeting Point in IMMA Reception.

Exhibition fee applies €5/€8. Book your exhibition ticket in advance here.

This is part of our informal curator’s talk series, where an IMMA curator who has worked on a particular exhibition will guide you through a short 30-40mins walkthrough of the work, highlighting key pieces of interest. In most cases the curator will have worked directly with the artist, or their estate, and can provide a fascinating insight into the artist’s practice, and the overall process of exhibition making at IMMA.


About the Artist

Lucian Freud 1922–2011

Lucian Freud (1922-2011) was one of the greatest realist painters of the 20th century. Renowned for his portrayal of the human form, Freud is best known for his intimate, honest, often visceral portraits. Working only from life Freud’s studio was intensely private and he mainly worked with those he was close to, often asking subjects to sit for hundreds of hours over multiple sittings to better capture the essence of their personality. — View Artist »
