Case Histories exhibition at the Freud Museum, London scheduled for November 2016


The Freud Museum, London, is pleased to announce a one-person exhibition of Martin Wilner's Case Histories. The unusual application of Freud's own basic principles of psychoanalysis have become an integral part of artist/psychiatrist Wilner's drawing practice in his recent calendar-based project, Making History. These works become highly interesting visual narratives that provide a contemporary counterpoint to Freud's classical case histories. The exhibition is scheduled for November 2016 to January 2017.
