Overview

This exhibition presents a new series of works and research developed in response to the IMMA Collection: Freud Project, 2016–2021 – a five-year project developed around the loan of 52 works by artist Lucian Freud. In 2017 Laura Fitzgerald, Richard John Jones, Bridget O’Gorman & Sue Rainsford were selected from the IMMA Residency Programme Open Call to live and work onsite responding to Freud at IMMA. Like any symbiotic relationship the resulting artworks produced by this creative community are complex, encompassing multiple viewpoints and modes of expression, living with, influenced by and occasionally opposed to their famous neighbour.

By presenting the contemporary voices of these responding residents Lucian’s Neighbours probes the relevance of Freud to current social and cultural discussions, and in so doing captures what can be revealed through the practice of one artist observing another. A number of additional events will accompany this exhibition. Join the IMMA Talks Mailing List to have event notifications and announcements sent to your email.


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 »
