Museum of Everything at Selfridges


This year’s Museum of Everything, the quirky annual show championing outsider art, will eschew its regular spot in London’s upmarket Primrose Hill in favour of department store Selfridges. Filling the retailers’ Oxford Street windows with weird and wonderful displays from selected artists, including the royal fixations of painter Ruby Bradford and the skilfully scribbled musical letters of Harald Stoffers.

The windows aim to entice passers-by into the show itself, located in Selfridges’ Ultralounge space on the lower floor, where they will be greeted by what The Museum of Everything describes as “a Willy Wonka sweetshop of aural delights”, including all kinds of visual art.

The Shop of Everything is also selling limited edition items at the store, including a womenswear collection created in collaboration with fashion brand Clements Ribeiro. Meanwhile, The Café of Everything will provide “almost free” refreshments to weary art viewers.
