Jane McAdam Freud LIVE at the Freud Museum! 
“Following the theme for my upcoming exhibition Woman as Taboo my most recent drawings are part of a series about the idea of history committing a sort of crime against women in the way our achievements and the female attribute (in both genders) has been undervalued. The series involves drawing around the model in the way one might find a body drawn around in a crime scene. However in paradox these drawings attempt an honorary ambiance.” 


Jane McAdam Freud, MA (Royal College of Art) is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.  She is represented in the major public collections in the UK and abroad,  including the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.  Her 57 solo exhibitions include retrospectives at the Wooyang Contemporary Art Museum in Gyeongju-si, South Korea and at the Freud Museum London. In 2014, along with Annie Leibovitz, McAdam Freud won the European Trebbia award for achievement in the arts.
McAdam Freud has lectured at the major London art schools, including the prestigious Royal College of Art and the University of the Arts where she is Associate Lecturer (1997 to present).  She is currently ‘artist in residence’ at the psychiatric hospital in Genoa, a residency that will culminate in September 2019 with a two-part exhibition titled Woman as Taboo. Part 1 will be held at the Palazzo Ducale and Part 2 at the Institute of Unconscious Materials and Forms, Genoa. McAdam Freud, who has published several papers on her work, focuses in her art on ‘origins’ – both personal and universal – and, in this sense, her work is conceptually informed by psychoanalytic theory.
