Visitors to luxury London hotels looking to do a bit of shopping at Selfridges may be interested to know that the Museum of Everything has taken over two of the shop’s window displays, installed a gallery and has included items in the store.
Exhibition 4, which usually takes place at the site in Primrose Hill, has moved to the new up-market retail location in what is the shop’s largest art installation to date.
From September 2nd through to October 25th, the large exhibition will be on display for passers-by, with audiences being entertained with a show, while inside there will be 200 never-before-seen international works of art, accompanied by talks, screenings and workshops.
“Experience the vast flying cities of Hans-Jorg Georgi, the voluptuous female conspirators of Giovanni Galli and the oven-baked cameras of ceramicist Alan Constable – three of the artists in this, Britain’s first ever survey of progressive studios from right across the planet,” explain the organisers.
The workshops are an initiative to support studios for self-taught artists with developmental and other disabilities.
Together with Action Space, London’s leading arts organisation for people with learning disabilities, Exhibition 4 will host a series of weekly art-making workshops free and open to all adults with developmental or other disabilities.
The luxury retailer commented: “Playful, personal, colourful and complex, Exhibition 4 is the Museum of Everything’s most radical show yet.”
Selfridges is ideally located for visitors to central London hotels, being accessible via Marble Arch and Bond Street Tube stations.
Additionally the flagship store is only a 20 minute walk away from The Montcalm hotel.
