Exhibition #3, curated by Sir Peter Blake, The Museum of Everything, London

There are surreal pleasures to be found all over Britain. Old amusement arcades in seaside towns, cranky ghost trains at funfairs and stuffy, outdated museums can appear wild in their sideways creativity. It is these objects – spooky, hilarious and made outside the formal world of art – that are explored in the Museum of Everything, a pop-up exhibit drawn from the collection of James Brett, a collector of outsider art, that opened in Primrose Hill last October. This week it was announced that the museum will stage its inaugural run in Russia, at Dasha Zhukova's Garage in Moscow, next year.

Anthony Rose: 'When it comes to label design the line between taste and kitsch is a fine one'

If you happened to have the odd £50k going spare, you could have snapped up the 60-bottle collection of every vintage from 1945 to 2003 (1948 apart) of Château Mouton Rothschild at Sotheby's recent 40th anniversary auction. The significance of the collection lies in the artists' labels, commissioned for each new vintage by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, and painted by, among others, Miró (1969), Chagall (1970), Picasso (1973), Andy Warhol (1975) and Francis Bacon (1990). The tradition was maintained by his daughter Baroness Philippine after his death, but this particular haul stopped one year short of the 2004 label painted by one Prince Charles.
