David Dawson, painter and longtime assistant and friend of Lucian Freud, shares personal insights and thoughts on his 20-year relationship with the brilliant and driven artist for this Tuesday Evenings at the Modern. Photographing Freud and his studio over the years, Dawson explained to the Guardian that his photographic documentation was an "honest record" of their relationship, commenting that working with Freud was "never a burden, but certainly a commitment."

Sounds Modern
Sep 15, 2012

Sounds Modern invites you to experience a musical counterpart to the paintings of Lucian Freud. As Freud was reinventing the tradition of portraiture, a generation of English composers was reinventing their relationship with a musical tradition. At the heart of this movement was the ensemble, The Fires of London, formed by Peter Maxwell Davies and an eclectic group of composers and performers. Their concerts delivered an entirely new musical experience.

Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (born Brian Donnelly) has received critical acclaim for the ease with which he straddles the commercial and fine art worlds. KAWS’s paintings, sculptures, prints, editioned toys, apparel, and other products deftly reference popular culture and the history of modern painting as they reflect the chaotic nature of contemporary life. KAWS has exhibited his work widely, and his piece Where the End Starts, 2011, was chosen for acquisition from the Modern’s Focus Show series last year.
