Exhibition #4 is Britain’s first international survey of contemporary studios for artists with developmental disabilities. The private worlds of fifty new discoveries will be revealed in the show, ranging from intimate works on paper to giant three-dimensional creations – plus a Frieze week retrospective of American sculptor, Judith Scott. This is the first time many of these unintentional artists have been seen in
Britain. The Museum of Everything invites the public to discover the work for themselves and to ask why these invisible artists remain overlooked by almost every gallery and museum in the land.
The venue for Exhibition #4 is Selfridges, London. For eight weeks The Museum of Everything will curate all the windows along Oxford Street and Orchard Street, as well the entire exhibition hall space.
On the ground floor, The Shop of Everything will sell bespoke merchandise to benefit the museum and the artists in the show, including an exclusive range of clothing co-designed with Clements Ribeiro.
