Folk Archive

About

Folk Archive is a vibrant collection of contemporary popular British culture by the artists Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane. Bringing together drawing, painting, film, performance, costume, decoration, political opinion and humour, and some astonishing objects, Folk Archive celebrates a vast range of British pastimes and pursuits, and demonstrates that folk art in the UK is both widespread and vigorous.

The creation of Folk Archive provided an opportunity for a cross section of the community to have their work shown in an art gallery for the first time and includes work from prisoners and community groups, gurning and barrel rolling participants, Notting Hill Carnival troupes, protesters, pop fans, bored teenagers, villagers and the homeless.

Gallery opening times:
Wednesday to Saturday, 10am - 5pm
Sunday, 11am - 3pm
* During the school holidays we will be open 10am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday, 11am - 3pm on Sunday.
