The Gallery of Everything presents The Medium’s Medium - a two-part exploration into spiritualist and mediumistic art practices, from the 19th Century to the present day.


This survey features drawings and paintings by a diverse range of authors - from established name to newer (re)discoveries - and includes material which is now acknowledged as a significant influence on the development of 20th-century art.

The Medium’s Medium opens at the Gallery of Everything on Sunday 29th September with a contemporary installation, featuring the seance photography of Shannon Taggart, channeled paintings by filmmaker Jan Svankmajer and his wife the painter Eva Svankmajerova, plus a commentary by multi-disciplinary artist Tony Oursler, whose imponderable collection revolved around his own lifelong fascination with mysticism. 

The Medium’s Medium continues at Frieze Masters, opening on Tuesday 2nd October, with an installation of early 20th century masterworks by such artists as Marian Spore Bush, Fleury-Joseph Crepin, Heinrich Nusslein, Augustin Lesage, Victor Simon, Austin Osman Spare - and the Czech spiritualist Franticek Jaroslav Pecka, whose hypercolour spirit portraits will be available for sale for the first time in Europe.
