Art Macabre: Solitary Pleasures Sketching Salon

Explore and draw the theme of masturbation, eroticism, desire and fantasy after hours within the Freud Museum. Nude figures will pose throughout the museum's domestic settings, celebrating and challenging our perceptions of the theme of self-pleasure, diverse sexualities and sexual health. Art Macabre invites you to examine, through your illustrations and mark making, our complex sexual, erotic and intimate encounters with ourselves. Capture unique snapshots of intimate moments as our model tableaux give playful private moments a public platform to be observed and sketched.

There will be the opportunity to also enjoy the Solitary Pleasures exhibition featuring work by artists Shannon Bell, VALIE EXPORT, Chantal Faust, Antony Gormley, Jordan McKenzie, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens, Emma Talbot, and Michelle Williams Gamaker.

This life drawing salon is suitable for all levels of experience..
