National Open Art Exhibition: The 4th Chichester Art Lecture
Sex, Psychology and Art
Three Generations of the Freud Family
21 Oct 2012
Comprised of three separate speakers, the 4th Chichester Art Lecture will explore the passions, attitudes and art of the Freud family: Sigmund (1856 – 1939), the founder of psychoanalysis, his son Lucian (1922 – 2011), one of the most important and influential artists of his generation, and his daughter Jane, an independent artist and sculptor.
Art critic and artist Estelle Lovatt, from Independent Radio Arts, will introduce Sharon Kivland, from Sheffield Hallam University, to talk about Sigmund Freud; Martin Gayford, ‘The Man in The Blue Scarf’ will share his experience of sitting for Lucian Freud, and Lucian’s daughter Jane McAdam Freud, will talk about her very personal experiences working with her father and her career as a Sculptor.
Jane’s works, in particular sculptural portraits of her father, will be on display on the stage which rather appropriately will be the stage set of Noël Coward's Private Lives.
The evening will be in two parts with an interval of 20 minutes during which refreshments will be available at the bars and the audience can browse the works presented by The Chichester Art Trust, a not for profit charity, hosting its 16th National Open Art Exhibition in the gallery across the foyer.
Please remain in your seats as the talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
