Exhibition: Encounters with the Spirit World / 14-20 August 2016

The College of Psychic Studies invites you to come and experience a unique and exciting encounter with the spirit world in the form of an exhibition spanning 150 years of mediumistic art, spirit photographs and artefacts from the College archives.

Six floors of the CPS Victorian townhouse in South Kensington will showcase over 300 spirit photographs, writing slates, spirit trumpets, planchettes and crystal balls. Expect to see the President's office used by former College President Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, still in use today and the rooms where psychic detective Harry Price built his laboratory.

Breathe in the atmosphere as you enjoy an unparalleled collection of mediumistic art. Highlights include the recently discovered drawings by Alice Pery (1833-1906), the visionary paintings by Ethel Le Rossignol (1873-1970) and an opportunity to see new acquisitions by contemporary artists invited by the College to exhibit works for sale during the exhibition.

The exhibition is timed to coincide with the summer show at the Courtauld Gallery featuring the extraordinary spirit drawings of Georgiana Houghton (1814-84). Georgiana was a founder member of the College and an album of her watercolours from our archives has been loaned to the Courtauld Gallery and forms an important part of their show.

The world of spirit awaits your arrival.
