The Museum of Everything
Il Palazzo di Everything

With over 500,000 visitors to its installations since 2009, The Museum of Everything is the first and only wandering institution for the untrained, undiscovered, unintentional and unclassifiable artists of modern times.

On 29th May 2013, The Museum of Everything will open Il Palazzo di Everything, an Official Collateral Event of the 55th Venice Biennale, which this year includes over a dozen of the self-taught artists featured in the museum's historic installations.

Carlo Zinelli
at Il Palazzo di Everything

In celebration, The Museum of Everything will present a retrospective of Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974), one of the key self-taught Italian artists of the 20th century, born just 100km from Venice itself.

During his lifetime, Zinelli's visual autobiography was celebrated by André Breton, Jean Dubuffet and Dino Buzzati, yet these rarely seen gouaches were created in the studio of a local hospital, where the artist lived after the Spanish Civil War left him shell-shocked.

This exhibition is the first time the artist has been shown at the Venice Biennale and has been organised in collaboration with the artist's family and the Carlo Zinelli Foundation.

at Il Palazzo di Everything

During the opening weeks of the Biennale, the museum will also host The Salon of Everything, an informal round-table conversation on private art practices, alternate languages and notions of otherness and difference in contemporary art.

Featuring leading artists, curators, writers and thinkers, The Salon of Everything will take place most afternoons and some mornings, with all sessions documented in conjunction with the BBC, to form an historic archive of ideas and opinions.

Current participants include curators Jean Hubert Martin, Ralph Rugoff and Paolo Colombo, artists Matt Mullican, Cindy Sherman, designer Ron Arad and more. If you wish to participate, please email your details:

For further information, please visit or come to Serra dei Giardini in between the Giardini and the Arsenale, where you can also find The Café of Everything - the only semi-functioning bar and eaterie anywhere near to the Giardini.
