“The Museum of Everything presents Exhibition #4, the world’s largest survey of progressive studios for self-taught artists from across the planet, plus Exhibition #4.1, the exclusive Judith Scott retrospective, recently featured on BBC2’s The Culture Show.”
Founded by James Brett, the Museum of Everything is a travelling exhibition of “outsider art”. Exhibition #4 is resident until October 25th 2011 at Selfridges of London department store, where The Museum of Everything has created the most expansive art collaboration in the store’s history: over 400 drawings, paintings & sculptures. Watch The Films of Everything showing the artists at work, or visit the library for The Conversations of Everything, as Cindy Sherman, Sir Ken Robinson, David Byrne & others discuss the art in the show.
Outsider Art is by regular people not educated in art who want to express something. Sometimes its by people with mental health issues, Brett prefers ‘the underdog'; people making work for themselves containing very private ideas and emotions. AJS
