Museum of Everything to Display Art Made by Artists Living Outside the Boundaries of Mainstream Society
From janitors to jailbirds, mediums to miners, The Museum of Everything features over 200 drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations.

LONDON.- Opening in October 2009, The Museum of Everything is London’s first and only public space for the display of art which has been created by artists living outside the boundaries of mainstream society.

Beautiful and challenging, delicate and democratic, this is the secret art, which has inspired generations of artists - from Dubuffet to Basquiat. In this groundbreaking exhibition, the museum has invited leading artists, curators and cultural figures to explore the continuing connection between this genre and contemporary practice.

These include: Annette Messager, Eva Rothschild, Tal R, Jamie Shovlin, Bob & Roberta Smith, Richard Wentworth, Idris Khan, Arnulf Rainer, Ed Ruscha, Jockum Nordstrom, Klara Kristalova, Karin Mamma Andersson, Mark Titchner, Jarvis Cocker, Nick Cave and Anthony Hegarty, amongst others.

These selectors have chosen artists from this genre that have influenced their own work – for example, the spirit drawings of London-born medium Madge Gill, the recycled ceramic kingdom of Indian road worker Nek Chand and the panoramic fairytale illustrations of the renowned Chicago recluse, Henry Darger.

From janitors to jailbirds, mediums to miners, The Museum of Everything features over 200 drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations presented within a former dairy and recording studio in Primrose Hill, a step away from Regents Park and the Frieze Art Fair.

The Museum of Everything formally opens its doors on 14th October 2009 with a gala event on the preceding evening. As an affiliate of the Frieze VIP programme, the venue will also present the premiere of the documentary ‘Make’ by filmmaker Scott Ogden and a special screening of ‘Journeys into the Outside’ with Jarvis Cocker.

James Brett, creator of the Museum, says: “For these artists there are no studios, no press junkets, no art fairs, no magazine spread. Instead there are treasure troves of untrained work, discovered under rocks, in basements and attics, its creators often unaware that their art would ever see the light of day.
