Folk Archive is an ongoing collection of contemporary folk and vernacular art from Britain and Ireland brough together by artists Alan Kane and 2004 Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller with curator Bruce Haines.


 

From Gunning to graffiti, tattoos to tapestries, customised cars to clairvoyants’ hand signs, this energetic and engaging collection is a real celebration of the creative life of Britain.
