Art Macabre and Freud Museum invite you to spend time reflecting on the concepts of self, subject and psyche through sketching. A life drawing event inspired by Mark Wallinger's Self Reflection exhibition.


This special exhibition by Turner Prize winning artist Mark Wallinger will mark the Freud Museum London’s 30th anniversary and the 160th anniversary of the birth of Sigmund Freud. The artist has created a transformative work for Freud’s study and a permanent sculpture to be situated in the Museum garden.

Art Macabre responds to the themes of Wallinger’s artworks. Create your own 'id paintings' in the garden, using large scale gestural drawing techniques to reveal a unique self portrait. Express your self through sketching from observation life models reacting to the museum's installations. Draw model Carla Tofano as she poses in a Rorschach test ink blot inspired installation in collaboration with artist Natanya Barrett. Volunteer to reveal yourself and take your turn to pose, to see how others see you.

A unique opportunity to explore the Freud Museum after hours. Drawing materials and paper provided.
