Before Christmas I braved the chill to trek round Primrose Hill to the Museum of Everything. I had wanted to go for a while and had really been looking forward to it which usually means I'm in for a disappointment. But actually it was maybe the best thing I saw all year. The museum was an old converted dairy filled with all varieties of art made by eccentrics, people with disabilities, hermaphrodites, criminals and the fervently religious, paired with commentary from art world notables including Jarvis Cocker, Bob & Roberta Smith, Annette Messager, Thurston Moore, Carston Holler, Peter Blake and others.
