I have a wicked crush on Viktor Wynd's projects, including Observatory's long-lost UK cousin, The Last Tuesday Society, which he runs. He also has a gallery, Viktor Wynd Fine Art, where he exhibits some of the most unique and imaginal works ever made. Case in point: his next show is of Leonora Carrington's prints, and it opens on November 5th:
Leonora Carrington, who died this year aged 94, led a life almost as picaresque and surreal as her art; born in Britain, she eloped with Max Ernst, hung out with Picasso and Dali, fled the Nazis, escaped from a Spanish psychiatric hospital and later settled in Mexico, where she built a reputation as one of the most original and visionary British artists and writers of the 20th century.
It's being shown in conjunction with the work of Tilly Losch, another beautifully bizarre broad.
