An exhibition showcasing significant recent work from artist Paul Coldwell, exploring ideas of presence and absence in relation to collections at the Freud Museums.

  • Paul Coldwell – Temporarily Accessioned: Freud’s Coat and other works
The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge is pleased to be exhibiting significant recent work from artist Paul Coldwell. He has been working closely with the Freud Museums in both London and Vienna to explore ideas of presence and absence supported by Arts Council England.

The exhibition runs in parallel to the Saint Thomas Becket – World Celebrity Healer show (showing in The Beaney Special Exhibitions Gallery between 29 May – 04 July). There are overlapping themes with, and links to, the Becket exhibition including the concept of exile (Becket to France in 1164 and Freud to London in 1938), objects and loss, pilgrims’ badges and migration.

Location: The Front Room, Ground Floor, The Beaney
