In the opening week of a new exhibition, Saying It, this conference includes talks by artists, curators, art historians and psychoanalysts who have participated in the contemporary art programme at the Freud Museum. Speakers will reflect on exhibiting artworks within the Freud Museum and consider the rich relationship that can exist between contemporary art and historical sites, and the possibilities it creates for new interpretations and experiences.
