The Museum of Everything

The Museum of Everything. Sounds pretty all-encompassing, right? This traveling exhibition started in London but has popped over to Italy, Russia and now Paris with its exposition of "undiscovered, unintentional and untrained artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries." Which begs the question:

What the hell does that mean?

What I do know is that it involves over 500 artists displaying in the classrooms of a former Catholic seminary, and that there are essays by the likes of John Baldessari, David Byrne, Ed Ruscha and Nick Cave to accompany the expo.

I am dying to know what goes on in this underground art fest. Is it wild, like Dimanche Rouge? Is it seemingly unending, like New York's Armory Show? Is it experimental, interactive or just fun? Fortunately, the Museum of Everything has extended its Paris run until the end of March, so there's an extra month to discover what adventures are going on at the expo. The experience is by-invitation only, so head over to the website and sign up.

  1. I made it yesterday and lived it so much I preempted Friday@Flore to post it. What that long, pseudo intellectual sentence means is Outsider Art, aka Art Brut, a genre popularized in the 70's. Its a traditional museum exhibit of non-traditional art and I loved it!!!
