‘Everything’ being London’s latest pop-up, this time brought to you by the Museum of Everything, the mad person’s version of a normal museum which stages highly odd events. But let them pick up the story about the Shop of Everything;
‘In a few short days we shall open the first stage of our forthcoming multi-stage operetta, the smiley-faced monster that is Exhibition #4.
Oxford Street is famous for many things, primarily for not being in Oxford. Despite this clear breach of city planning guidelines, we are prepared to open the Oxford Street windows of Selfridges in twenty-four hours under the following strict conditions:
a) you promise to come and be incredibly enthusiastic, even if it’s not quite your thing;
b) you smile through gritted teeth, give us a big hug and shower us with compliments;
c) you commit to at least one visit when Exhibition #4 opens on Friday 2nd September.
The Windows of Everything will be formally opened on Friday 26th August 2011 by Lady Edna Fullbream, Managing Director of Dagenham Protective Bibs and Safety Harnesses, who has invited everyone for a cup of tea and a jam roly-poly at her summer home in Penge.’
From that you may gather – or may not, what do I know? – that the Museum of Everything will have a pop-up shop and cafe at The Shop of Everything, which will pop up on the corner of Oxford Street and Orchard Street, behind the windows opposite Sparkies.
The rest you’ll have to figure out from their frankly barking website.
