Drawing Room in collaboration with Hayward Gallery Touring presents a major exhibition exploring drawings produced or influenced by the mediumistic channelling of external forces.

From spiritualist practices of communing with the beyond, to Surrealist experiments with automatism, the exhibition builds a genealogy of artistic engagements with the supernatural, the subconscious and the otherworldly, from the 19th century visionary art of William Blake and Georgiana Houghton to the contemporary responses of Sigmar Polke and Susan Hiller.

Featuring the work of Robert Barry, William Blake, Cameron, Bonnie Camplin, Ann Churchill, Ithell Colquhoun, Louise Despont, Casimiro Domingo, Madge Gill, Madame Fondrillon, Chiara Fumai, Susan Hiller, Barbara Honywood, Georgiana Houghton, Anna Mary Howitt, Victor Hugo, Augustin Lesage, Museum of Black Hole Spacetime Collective, Pia Lindman, Ann Lislegaard, André Masson, František Jaroslav Pecka, Grace Pailthorpe, Olivia Plender, Sigmar Polke, Lea Porsager, Austin Osman Spare and Yves Tanguy.

Curated by Lars Bang Larsen, Simon Grant and Marco Pasi, Not Without My Ghosts is a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition developed in partnership with Drawing Room. It will travel to Blackpool, Sheffield and Swansea later in the year.
