everything

words: clare

Primrose Hill. Not usually associated with London’s contemporary art scene. But here, hidden away in a former dairy, you’ll find one of the city’s most unusual exhibitions. The Museum of Everything opened its doors in November and was initially planned as a pop-up exhibition but it’s been extended due to popular demand.  This show focuses on the unknown artist, the untrained… the outsider. As well as works by mediums, nuns, schizophrenics and hobos, you’ll find a display of (somewhat disturbing) fairytale illustrations by  Chicago janitor, Henry Darger, and ceramic sculptures from road worker, Nek Chand (below). The Museum of Everything is without doubt one of the most baffling, awe-inspiring and captivating exhibitions I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. Make it your mission to catch it before it closes on Feb 14th.
