To coincide with the 2018 Sydney Biennale, and in celebration of a record-breaking ten month residence at the Museum of Old and New Art in Australia (Mona), The Museum of Everything is proud to announce the release of its latest publication, Everything #7.

With over 100 colour plates, plus an additional photo-book documenting its critically-acclaimed installation, this significant addition to the contemporary canon has been printed in a limited edition of 1,500 and is available exclusively from The Museum of Everything via The Shop of Everything—either online here or on location at Mona in Hobart, Tasmania.

This long-awaited two-volume publication includes contributions by Jennifer Higgie, editor of Frieze Magazine, and Massimiliano Gioni, director of the New Museum in New York and curator of the 51st Venice Biennale. Together with The Museum of Everything’s founder, James Brett, the trio discuss the rise of so-called outsiderism and the corresponding collapse of its separatist status and terminology. 

Australian artists + additional highlights
Exclusive to this edition are a number of Australian art-makers, presented for the first time within The Museum of Everything. Conceptual sculptor Terry Williams’ soft domestic forms have been championed by Ricky Swallow and Matthew Higgs of White Columns. The late Perth-based painter Stan Hopewell was discovered by educator and curator Professor Ted Snell, and honoured with a solo show of his visionary and esoteric assemblies in 2014.

Also illustrated in Everything #7 are an early pair of monumental graphic essays by Paul Laffoley, the Boston protégé of inventor Frederick Kiesler, whose philosophical proposals for alternative eco-systems and anti-architectures resonate with our global environment, and include the depiction of a dream in which the artist pre-sees the events of 9/11.

Notable additions are an unfinished multi-layered masterwork by Dutch iconoclast and autobiographer, Willem van Genk; a handcarved fully-staffed sailing ship by Picasso-collected delinquent carver, Auguste Forestier; and The Kittens Tea Party, an iconic anthropomorphic tour-de-force by the notorious 19th century taxidermist, Walter Potter

Accompanying visuals range from a nighttime seascape by Irish storyteller James Dixon; a rare oversized series of Russian rituals by landscape gardener and draughtsman, Vassily Romanenkov; a mountain of figurative deities by the Afghani-born Iranian mythologist, Alikhan Abdollahi; over two dozen gouache asylum observations by Viennese  ceramics painter, Josef Karl Radler; and a doodle by Scottie Wilson of uniquely epic proportion. 

50% off for 150 academies & institutes 

The Museum of Everything functions as a platform for some of the most significant, private makers of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, as well as for overlooked or under-known authors who have yet to gain traction beyond the non-academic field. 

In pursuance of these aims, The Museum of Everything is pleased to offer a 50% reduction on Everything #7 to the first 150 accredited academic, educational or cultural organisations who respond to this communication March 31, 2018. Please email me [​at​] musevery.com.

The Museum of Everything also invites attendees, artists and associated representatives at this year’s Sydney Biennale to visit the exhibition at Mona in Tasmania and collect a free soft Everything A3 catalogue.
