Consumer / Art & Design: The Museum of Everything at Selfridges

Check out The Museum of Everything’s window and store take-over at Selfridges in London, this autumn.

This week The Museum of Everything presents its fourth exhibition at one of London’s most famous shopping destinations, Selfridges – taking over the main windows and Ultra Lounge exhibition space for an art and fashion collaboration spectacular.

A cluster of paintings and sculptures by untrained artists will be displayed alongside a special collection by design duo, Clements Ribeiro.  Entitled Project 6, nightwear, silk shifts and shoes will be painted with surreal prints designed by contributing artists with learning difficulties”.

“We selected these artists’ work for their intricacy, depth and for what we saw as a natural progression to printed textiles. We also love the idea of pairing different prints together in a riot of pattern and color,” explains Inacio Ribeiro, one half of the print loving duo.

The Museum of Everything’s inaugural display (outside of their Primrose Hill base) in 2009, saw ‘outsider artist’ Henry Darger display his drawings alongside Marc Jacobs bags, provoking the Tate Modern and celebrated British artist Sir Peter Blake to jump on board for their second and third shows.

Following the exhibition, a museum of curious oddities, shop and café will pop up in the Selfridges retail space for a further nine weeks.

Keep checking the website as more whimsical projects from the museum’s collaboration are added.  Project 6 will run in Selfridges from September 2nd to October 25thSamantha Fox
