Table Top Museum - Sunday 24 September 2017

The Art Workers’ Guild
Sunday 24 September 2017 11 am - 6 pm

Following the very successful first Table Top Museum held at the Art Workers’ Guild in 2014, we are holding a follow-up event on Sunday 24 September.  An exhibition of 22 installations, curated by Guild Brothers and others selected by invitation, the event will be an exhilarating, exciting and inventive celebration of the madness and the individual and extraordinary rules of those who collect. Featuring museums of groovy flutes, coastal curiosities, shopping lists, gay dolls and the Chinchilla’s Museum of Crypto-Zoology, to name but a few.

An Art Workers’ Guild outreach initiative, the exhibition is organised by Stephen Fowler and George Hardie. It forms part of the Guild’s involvement in the London Design Festival, alongside Neil Jennings’ exhibition ’Works on Paper’

The Museum will be open to the public for one day only on Sunday 24 September, 11 am – 6 pm and entry is free of charge. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.

Venue :
The Art Workers’ Guild
6 Queen Square
