In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the International Psychoanalytical Association, we are pleased to welcome the Los Angeles community to an art exhibit  featuring the work of  London based artist, Jane McAdam Freud, the great grand daughter of Sigmund Freud and daughter of the well known English artist Lucian Freud takes place at the New Center for Psychoanalysis at 2014 Sawtelle Blvd., West Los Angeles. This exhibit is co-sponsored by three IPA affiliate organizations in Los Angeles- Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies (LAISPS),  Psychoanalytic Center of California (PCC) and New Center for Psychoanalysis (NCP).

According to the artist the exhibit, Freud on Freud, "focuses on the interplay between my conceptual sculptures and Freud's theories."  Conceptually she references Freud's dream work with ideas and images both compressed and displaced by substitutes to make physical – in sculptural terms - some of Freud's written concepts. “My hope for this physical interpretation of some of Freud's works is to go some way towards continuing Freud's work of helping us who are at war with ourselves and others.”

Jane McAdam Freud is a multi-disciplinary artist educated at Central St. Martin’s and the Royal College of Art in London.  She won the British Art Medal scholarship, the Italian State Mint Prize, and Freedom of the City of London. She exhibits both nationally and internationally and her work has been acquired for numerous international Public Collections including the British Museum, Berlin State Museum, National Gallery of Greece, National Gallery Archives London and is on permanent display at the Victoria and Albert Museum.  “My sculpture has always been concerned with duality and the edges where art and psychology meet.”
