Everything Comes To An End

Opened in October 2009 The Museum of Everything proclaims itself to be ‘London’s 1st ever space for artists and creators living outside of modern society’. After hearing the radient reviews and accaldes in praise of the innovative collection of art on display I decided to take a stroll across Regent’s Park and enjoyed a gander around this old dairy building turned exhibition in Primrose Hill.

Museum of Everything, Exhibition No. 1

Exhibition no. 1 is still showing and presents a selection  of works chosen by leading artists, curators and cultural figures. Contributors include the likes of music legends Jarvis Cocker and Nick Cave to leading artists such as Annette Messager, Grayson Perry, Eva Rothschild, Ed Ruscha and Richard Wentworth. Works were chosen from the extensive holdings of Musuem founder James Brett and were installed in the space to produce an often bizarre display of more than 200 drawings, paintings, sculptures, objects and installations.

In an interview with The Art Newspaper Brett explained, “This project developed simply because there is no other museum or gallery in the UK devoted to this kind of marginal or discovered art…bringing interesting people and objects together and looking at what happens when these things collide.” Ultimately Brett hopes that The Museum of Everything will become the home for a broad range of work from the untrained, work that for some reason just doesn’t fit anywhere else.

The museum’s current exhibition only runs until Valentine’s Day so, if you haven’t already done so you might want to take advice from the website…’get your act together and come visit before the market crashes again’.
