NO SHOW MUSEUM
'No Show Museum' is an independent online archive dedicated to the documentation, preservation and presentation of the art of nothing. Ever since John Cage's silent music piece 4'33" (1952) or Yves Klein's exhibition of the void in 1958, nothing has become a recognised art form. The works of the 'No Show Museum' will showcase various types and forms of nothing that emerged during the last century including but not limited to conceptual art, minimal art, painting, performance art, photography, literature, theater, film, and music.
