Join Christina Kennedy, Head of Collections, IMMA, for an insightful walkthrough of the exhibition Life Above Everything: Lucian Freud and Jack B. Yeats No need to book in advance, just come to the IMMA Freud Centre.
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 30-40 mins 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.
Irish painter Jack Butler Yeats was born in London and grew up in Sligo. He attended the Government School of Design and the Westminster School of Art. Yeats was elected a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1916. His painting ‘The Liffey Swim’ won a silver medal at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris. The broad fluid brushstrokes of that work mark the beginning of his expressive and experimental style. Yeats's work is held in numerous national collections including IMMA, the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Crawford Art Gallery.View Artist
