The Museum of Everything

Nek Chand, Cloth Figures, c. 1980

The Museum of Everything has had two shows so far and they have both been spectacular.  The Museum of everything is London's first ever space for artists and creators living outside our modern society, obsessive or marginalised individuals - Ousider Art.

On Wednesday 13th October 2010, The Museum of Everything returned to London with Exhibition #3

Their collaborator this year is 
Sir Peter Blake, the godfather of British pop art and a collector par excellence, whose accumulations of self-taught art, found objects and anonymous artefacts inform and inspire his own oeuvre.

Exhibition #3 reveals his discoveries for the very first time, as the museum’s Primrose Hill space becomes a canvas for the largest and most ambitious art installation ever created by the legendary septuagenarian.

Marvel at thier assemblies of Punch and Judy and little people! Bedazzle yourself with side-show banners from the Americas! Ride the miniature fairgrounds of retired Norfolk farmer Arthur Windley! Stuff yourself at Walter Potter's Museum of Curiosity, a masterwork of Victorian animalia!

It's on until Chrismas so make sure you go and have a look. This is how to get there...

Have a look at the website for a list of happenings and events during Frieze art fair.
