Metamorphosis of Narcissus, Salvador Dali

Join us for our first ever surrealist costume ball marking the meeting of two great minds; Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí, 80 years ago.

Dress code: Freud, Dalí, Surrealism
Whatever you do, leave the ordinary and every day at home.

You will be serenaded by a sonic music surrealist DJ dream created by a “Female Figure with Head of Flowers” Auntie Maureen. Flowers, soundscapes and electronic beats weave together a musical dream on a Freudian dance floor. Prancing, dancing and surreal self-expression are all most welcome.

Join London Drawing Group for a true celebration of the surrealist manifesto – disrupt your normal drawing practices (or if you don’t have one, invent one!) embrace the chaos of creation and collaborate with others in honor of the incredible relationship between Dalí and Freud.

Throughout the evening, you will discover impromptu performances. You will be able to drop in at the LDG interactive drawing station and collaborate, create, and confuse with their resident LDG tutors, or venture into the immersive experience of Freud’s house, armed with an array of exercises and techniques to get everyone creating surrealist masterpieces!

No costume – no admission.

Part of an exciting series of talks and events which coincide with ‘Freud, Dali and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus’ on display the Museum from 3 October 2018 – 24 February 2019.
