IMMA Collection: Freud Project, Gaze is the latest iteration in the five year Freud Project. For this special Member’s event you are invited to join the conversation between IMMA’s Head of Collections Christina Kennedy and Johanne Mullan, IMMA Collection Programmer. They will discuss the concept behind Gaze, the reason for the inclusion of Pauline Cummins’ work Inis t’Oirr and the digital conservation work that was necessary to bring this work in to the public exhibition.

One of our main objectives is to bring our Members closer to the art at IMMA. This event gives members and their guests insight into the conceptual framework upon which this particular exhibition is built, and also in to the processes involved in exhibition and Collection making.

To book your place at this event contact our Membership officer [email protected] Please note that you must be a Member to attend this event.

Membership starts at €50 for the year. Join Today

Lucian Freud

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.
