No Soul For Sale 2010 at Tate Modern, 14th/15th/16th May, 2010
Calling all the untrained, unintentional and unseen artists of our Great Britain.
Are you a marginal or self-taught artist? Have you received a divine calling to depict new worlds? Or are you an artist with a disability, whose creativity has been undeservedly overlooked? An amateur painter with something extra? Even a collector who has chanced upon an oeuvre of indecipherable doodlings?
If this sounds like you, The Museum of Everything cordially invites you to submit an artwork to Exhibition #2, to be held at head at the greatest museum in the land: London's Tate Modern.
Exhibition #2 will take place on May 14th, 15th and 16th 2010. To enter, simply arrive at the Tate Modern during the show with an unframed work on paper. The artwork will be assessed by our esteemed Board of Trustees and if successful, will be displayed inside the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern itself.
We humbly urge you not to miss this gilded opportunity. The Museum of Everything is Britain's only space dedicated to art by the untrained, unintentional and unseen artists of today.
We shall be presenting over 1000 artworks during the course of the 3-day exhibition. These works will be published and invited to enter The Museum of Everything's permanent collection.
Bring your creativity to the eyes and ears of Britain.

ABOUT Exhibition #1, 2009
The Museum of EVERYTHING
In October 2009, The Museum of Everything opened in London to coincide with the Frieze Art Fair.
Exhibition #1 featured 500 works by non-traditional artists, including mediumistic and visionary artists, folk artists and artisans, naive and brut artists, and artists with a physical or developmental disability.
These artworks were curated by 100 contemporary artists and creative figures, including Ed Ruscha, Annette Messager, David Byrne, Grayson Perry, John Baldessari, Jarvis Cocker, Peter Blake and Pete Townshend.
The exhibition was a significant critical and public success, with over 35,000 visitors in 4 months. It was reviewed internationally online and in print and was voted Best of 2009 by Art Forum, Time Out and others.

The exhibition received widespread critical and public support. A book of the exhibition [Everything #1] was published by Electa/Mondadori and features 800 images plus commentaries by Hans Ulrich Obrist and others.
