After its successful debut in London in 2009, The Museum of Everything visited Italy to present a selection of works by unconventional artists of the 20th century. Works showcased include those by mediums, miners and mystics, self-taught artists, obsessional and visionary artists, and artists and craft experts with disabilities, who operate outside conventional aesthetic standards. The collection is composed of examples of works by the greatest artists working in this sphere. The Museum of Everything invited more than 50 well-known figures in the world of art and music to write about works that have inspired them. As a result, the works are accompanied by contributions from Peter Blake, Christian Boltanski, Nick Cave, Paul Chan, Jarvis Cocker, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Pete Townsend and many others. The Turin exhibition includes contributions from John Baldessari, Maurizio Cattelan, Paolo Colombo, Marlene Dumas, Cornelia Parker and Francesco Vezzoli.
