As MONA tends to do, its lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion is in­trigu­ing and in­ter­est­ing. The ex­hi­bi­tion con­sists of art ob­jects se­lected and cu­rated by The Mu­seum of Ev­ery­thing. James Brett, founder, The Mu­seum of Ev­ery­thing said, “The Mu­seum of Ev­ery­thing is not an ex­hi­bi­tion of art ob­jects. It is a dic­tio­nary of pri­vate lan­guages, a sur­vey of hu­man be­hav­iours and an en­cy­clopae­dia of pro­found be­liefs. Our artists do not cre­ate for the mar­kets or mu­se­ums. They make be­cause they must and – from Henry Darger to Nek Chand Saini – have some­thing vi­tal to say about the essence of their lives. We in­vite you to discover them and their life­time’s labour; and we hope that they move you as they have al­ways moved us.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture over 1,500 works from the 19th, 20th and 21st cen­turies, ar­ranged over a se­ries of themed spa­ces in an in­for­mal jour­ney through hu­man mak­ing. In­cluded in the show are draw­ings, sculp­tures and paint­ings, as well as ce­ram­ics, col­lage, pho­tog­ra­phy, as­sem­blage, plus found ob­jects and in­stal­la­tions. It is the first time The Mu­seum of Ev­ery­thing has vis­ited Australia, it will be at MONA un­til 2 April, 2018. mona.net.au
