Jane Mc Adam FREUD

Us colour

McAdam Freud began her career with a solo show at age 18, curated by her art teachers at Putney College cited on Putney Hill, now amalgamated with Wandsworth Technical Institute in 1974 and called South Thames College.

After completing her Foundation at Wimbledon College of Art in 1977, she studied Mosaics in Ravenna 1977-78 returning to London to study at the Central School of Art and Design and at the Royal College of Art under the supervision of John Stezaker and Eduardo Paolozzi.

In 1986 she won the British Art Medal Scholarship in Rome where she studied sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma under Gino Marotta and at the Scuola d’Arte della Medaglia. McAdam Freud is an associate lecturer at Central Saint Martins and teaches short courses in the Sculpture School at Morley College. She has also taught at the Royal College of Art, London and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp.

Jane McAdam Freud is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. In 1991 she was awarded the Italian State Mint prize for her work ‘Moments and Memories’ which is honoured by putting into production the winning work by the Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato. In the same year she was granted Freedom of the City of London on merit. She has published several catalogues including; On the Edge 1996, Relative Relations 2006 and numerous papers on Art and Psychoanalysis.

Her preference for this work was to locate it within reach of a psychoanalytically aware audience. ‘Dead or Alive’, short film refers to Freud’s concept of Condensation, was however shown internationally at museums, institutes and galleries including Philoctetes Centre for the Imagination, NY, New York USA in 2008, Lung Yingtai Cultural Foundation, (Media Tek Lectures) Taipei, Taiwan and the Kosciuszko Foundation, NYC, USA in 2009. Also the Sundaram Tagore Gallery, LA, USA in 2010 and Whitelabs Gallery, Milan in 2012.
