What really goes into making a work of art? As part of London Craft Week 2019, the Freud Museum will be inviting artists Christie Brown and Barnaby Barford to explore the creative process in the production of their work, chaired by psychoanalyst Lesley Caldwell.

About

London Craft Week (8-12 May 2019) is an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers alongside celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands.

The Freud Museum’s participation aims to offer an interesting and unique contribution to the London Craft Week agenda, demonstrating the application of psychoanalysis to artistic creation. The Museum has an impressive repertoire of site-responsive exhibitions held in its unique space throughout its 33-year history.

Christie Brown and Barnaby Barford have formerly exhibited their work at the Freud Museum. Christie Brown’s solo exhibition in 2012-2013 entitled DreamWork was comprised of ceramic figures that responded to Sigmund Freud’s own collection of antiquities. Barnaby Barford contributed to a major in-house exhibition in 2018, Leaving Today: the Freuds in Exile 1938, where he produced a series of artworks with young survivors living in exile in London.
