The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & UnNatural Museum’s ‘Spare Room’ is the only permanent gallery dedicated to work by the great 20th century artist and occultist Austin Osman Spare (1886-1956) – one of the greatest stars of the Edwardian Artworld – hailed as a godfather to both Surrealism and Pop Art- and perhaps the most significant figure in the British Occult during the 20th century.
The event will also serve as the launch party for the new edition of Phil Baker’s Austin Osman Spare biography – copies available to pre-order – for collection on the night only
In 2023 the museum acquired 5 (or possibly 6 – watch this space) drawings that will now go on view amongst other works by the artist in the museum”
