The Freud Project Residency Programme • Laura Fitzgerald, Richard John Jones, and Bridget O’Gorman & Sue Rainsford
 
This exhibition presents a new series of works and research developed in response to the IMMA Collection: Freud Project, 2016 – 2021 – a five-year project developed around the loan of 52 works by artist Lucian Freud. In 2017 Laura Fitzgerald, Richard John Jones, Bridget O’Gorman & Sue Rainsford were selected from the IMMA Residency Programme Open Call to live and work onsite responding to Freud at IMMA. Like any symbiotic relationship the resulting artworks produced by this creative community are complex, encompassing multiple viewpoints and modes of expression, living with, influenced by and occasionally opposed to their famous neighbour.

By presenting the contemporary voices of these responding residents Lucian’s Neighbours probes the relevance of Freud to current social and cultural discussions, and in so doing captures what can be revealed through the practice of one artist observing another.
