February Event Highlights in London

In this series, we will find a handful of events that we think you need in on each month. If you’re attending something in London next month (March ’19), let us know and we might feature it in the series!

Art exhibition

Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus – Freud Museum, Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead

(3rd October 2018 – 24th Feb 2019)

Painting on loan from the Tate. The exhibit explores the influence Freud had on Dali’s work and surrealism, (Dali was fascinated by Freud’s revolutionary psychoanalysis and studied his theories in great depth as inspiration for his abstract styling). It also explores themes of self-obsession, looking at Greek mythology and the tale of Narcissus and his destructive beauty. The exhibit is presented through the title painting as well as diary entries, drawings, photographs and prints. The primary theme appears to be obsessions whether that be Dali’s with Freud or mankind and himself.
