Museum of Everything

In tiny crevices and under dusty beds, there lies a secret creativity by the unknowns of society. Unexpected, delicate, profound, this democratic work has inspired the world’s greatest artists and creative minds.

Museum of Everything

Next week the world’s only travelling museum for undiscovered, unintentional and untrained artists arrives in Paris. The Museum of Everything with it’s new exhibition #1.1, is an epic journey of more than 500 self-taught artworks and objects, curated within the narrow corridors and silent classrooms of a 1,000m2 former Catholic seminary in the heart of St Germain. An alternative history of modern and contemporary art, Exhibition #1.1 embraces artists who function without art education, theory or society. To illustrate this philosophy, Exhibition #1.1 incorporates essays by leading artists, curators, writers and thinkers, including David Byrne, Ed Ruscha, Marlene Dumas, Carsten Höller, Maurizio Cattelan, Nick Cave, Annette Messager, John Baldessari, Paula Rego and Christian Boltanski.

The Museum of Everything // Exhibition #1.1 can be found at: 14 boulevard Raspail, 75007 Paris. Exhibition opens Monday 15th October 2012 and ends Sunday 16 December.
