The roving Museum of Everything gets a permanent London home, and Jarvis Cocker's blessing
Registered as a British charity, the Museum of Everything has held exhibitions and installations throughout the world in Britain (London), Europe (Venice, Paris, Rotterdam), and Russia (Moscow), which have cumulatively greeted 700,000 visitors. The newly established Gallery of Everything in London is the first fixed venue and commercial space in London, its mission just as dedicated to showcasing outsider art. The inaugural exhibition, "Journeys into the Outside," will be jointly curated by former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker and James Brett, who founded the Museum of Everything as a nonprofit in the UK in 2009. Amongst the gallery's visual portfolio: Howard Finster (beloved by members of the band the Talking Heads), St EOM (a self-appointed visionary whose art is not for sale), Juva (a forgotten nobleman who fanatically collected flint stones), and Aloïse Corbaz (portraitist).
