British Folk Art Tate Modern

Super new exhibition of folk art at Tate modern – from mast heads to bone chickens.

“Curator Martin Myrone introduces the British Folk Art exhibition at Tate Britain. Steeped in tradition and generally created by self-taught artists and artisans, the often humble but always remarkable objects on display include everything from quirky shop signs and Toby jugs, to elaborately crafted quilts.”

This exhibition has had mixed reviews mainly from the art establishment, some of the work blurs the boundaries of some rather well known artists installations.
