Exhibition: Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus

The Freud Museum London organises an exhibition titled Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus that could be of interest to h-madness readers. It runs from 3 October 2018 to 24 February 2019. More information can be found on the website of the museum.

A small excerpt from the website reads:

“Dalí was a passionate admirer of the father of psychoanalysis and finally met him in London on July 19th 1938. This year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of this event. A new exhibition at the Freud Museum will explore the connection between the two men, starting from their one meeting, to which Dalí brought his recently completed painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus.

The painting, on loan from the Tate, will be the central point in the exhibition for an exploration of the extensive influence of Freud on Dalí and on Surrealism. Also considered will be Freud’s own attitude to painting, illuminated by his response to this encounter with Dalí.”
