Dublin’s Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) was thronged on Wednesday evening for the launch of The Ethics of Scrutiny curated by Daphne Wright, the second exhibition to be presented as part of the ground-breaking IMMA Collection: Freud Project – a five-year loan of 52 works by renowned artist Lucian Freud (1922-2011), one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. For this latest exhibition in this unique project, IMMA invited visual artist Daphne Wright to curate a response to Lucian Freud’s works. The Ethics of Scrutiny takes aspects of Freud’s intimate studio practice as a starting point to explore themes of vulnerability, longing and loss that permeate the painter’s work. Two new paintings by Lucian Freud are now being exhibited at IMMA for the first time.

The Freud Project is a wonderful collection of exhibitions, artist residencies, lectures, talks and many other activities that are a joy for any fan of his work and firmly establishes IMMA as a world-class institution. It is all made possible by funding from the Department for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht as well as members of the Freud Circle; BNP Paribas and Credit Suisse. This support means that IMMA can offer free entry to the exhibition once a week on a Tuesday, as well as free entry all week long to full time students and those under 18.

With tickets just €8, be sure not to miss this exhibition- and keep an eye out for other Freud special exhibits at IMMA where the project runs until 2021.
