the end of the world, my foot! Exhibition 1.1

You must have heard it a hundred times by now: according to the ancient Maya calendar the End of Time is scheduled for December 21st, 2012.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, for those who were hoping to avoid holiday shopping) this popular belief is based on a misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar!

December 21, 2012 is simply the day that the calendar will go to the next b'ak'tun, at Long Count

The date on which the calendar will go to the next piktun (a complete series of 20 b'ak'tuns), at Long Count[masked], will be on October 13, 4772.

That gives us another 2760 years!!!

You'll see, on Saturday the 22nd, instead of there being nothing left of the world... there will still be everything!

So let's visit The Museum of Everything!

The Museum of Everything is the world's only travelling museum for undiscovered, unintentional and untrained artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Since 2009 over 350,000 people have visited its installations in London, Turin and Moscow. Currently The Museum of Everything is visiting Paris...

Let's meet around 11am at Le Bizuth Café (202 Bd St Germain) and then walk over to the museum before noon.

Be sure to obtain your official invitation here :
