Event – London – The Museum of Everything #4
September 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Location: Selfridges, London
Date: Open until 25th October 2011
For its latest exhibition The Museum of Everything has taken over Selfridges. We get some art and retail therapy.
While mid-morning Selfridges shoppers browse the Vivienne Westwood collection on the women’s fashion floor, away from public view in a room a few metres away, a lively artists’s workshop is in full swing.
The sprawling show is currently colonising Selfridges storefront windows and Ultralounge space with a vibrant display of more than 200 drawings, paintings and sculptures by artists from progressive studios around the world.
To generate funds for future projects – all exhibitions to date have been free – its own in-store outlet ‘The Shop of Everything’ is stocking branded goods including books, badges and tea towels, limted-edition artists’s prints and a fashion collection designed by Clements Ribeiro. It has made a big splash with its signage too. To find the exhibition just follow the arrows and the cardboard signs stuck on sink plungers placed on counters all round the store.
‘The Museum of Everything Exhibition #4’ and the accompanying workshops continue at Selfridges until Oct 25. Information on Action Space workshops and events can be found at actionspace.org … The best part… It’s FREE!!
