In his wildly intuitive way\, and while still a teenager\, he knew exactly what was in store: “I’m going to be famous and I’m going to die young.”  Basquiat’s extraordinary access to the ecstatic and destructive powers of creation extracted a terrible price on his perishable human life\, but his body of work is everlasting.  In this presentation we will examine Jung’s concept of creativity as an autonomous complex as witnessed in the individuation process of Basquiat himself.\n \n\n\n\nLearning Objectives: \n\n\nDescribe what is meant by the creation complex\, Jung’s concept of creativity as an autonomous complex \n\n\nGive an example of the destructive vs creative aspects of the creation complex \n\n\nDescribe some of the similarities and key differences between artistic creation vs pathology and how to differentiate between these in clinical practice. \n\n\n\nIrene Cioffi Whitfield\, Ph.D.\, is a Jungian analyst and art historian in private practice in London. A member of The Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists in London as well as the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association in New York City\, Irene received her Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts specializing in 18th Century Italian painting. Her work focuses on the intersection of art and psychology\, especially the dangerous dynamics of the creative process. She has lectured internationally on the life and work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. \nRefund requests must be sent by email at before noon (12:00 pm) prior to the program being paid for.
