After the success of its British and Italian shows, The Museum of Everything presents Exhibition #3: a new celebration of non-traditional art and artists from around the world, curated with the founding father of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake.
Sir Peter Blake is a collector par excellence. From The Beatles to the present day, his love of self-taught art, discovered objects and anonymous artefacts have informed and inspired his own oeuvre.
In Exhibition #3, Sir Peter Blake will reveal his discoveries for the very first time. Together they will form the largest art installation ever created by the legendary artist and collector.

Exhibition #3 will also recreate one of the greatest marvels of Victorian England – Mr Potter’s Museum of Curiosities.
An eccentric self-taught artist, Potter’s astonishing woodland dioramas include cricket matches, classrooms, weddings and clubs, all populated by a cast of dogs, kittens, squirrels and birds.
This rare and historic body of work has influenced such artists as Damien Hirst, Polly Morgan and Sir Peter Blake. It forms a unique snapshot of a lost artform and its brilliant Victorian creator.
