The Museum of Everything.







A wonderful museum (featuring exhibition no.1) crammed with an eclectic mix of art made by 'untrained' 'unintentional' and 'unseen' creators. It is located in a terrace house/ware house type building in primrose hill. Some work that I found particularly inspiring was by sister gertrude morgan who was a missionary and produced naive religious art and Alexandre P Lobanov who after being denied a gun as a young boy became obsessive with them producing loads of paintings and portraits with guns. Interesting also, my dad noticed none of them showed any actual acts of violence.
I hear the exhibition is only on until Christmas so you should go soon!
Read some better reviews here if you don't believe me!
Let's hope exhibition no.2 is just as exciting....
(sorry for poor quality images!)

  2. CALLING THE UNTRAINED, UNINTENTIONAL & UNSEEN CREATORS OF GREATER BRITAIN.

    Are you a marginal or self-taught artist? Have you received a divine calling to depict strange new worlds?
    Are you an artist with a disability, whose creativity has been undeservedly overlooked? Or a collector with a cache of anonymous doodlings?

    If this sounds like you The Museum of Everything cordially invites you to submit a work on paper (or anything small and light) to Exhibition #2, to be held on May 14th, 15th & 16th, 2010, as part of No Soul For Sale at London's Tate Modern.

    Exhibition #2 is open to all, non-professional, non - traditional, and non-exhibited artists, living or long gone.
    To enter simply turn up at the Tate Modern with your artwork where it will be assessed by our esteemed Board of Trustees. Successful works will be displayed in The Turbine Hall and published in a book of the exhibition.

    REVEAL YOUR CREATIVITY AT THE TATE MODERN & EXHIBIT AT THE MUSEUM OF EVERYTHING.
