StreetFans — A Street Art Exhibition at the London Fan Museum

Calling all Street Art Fans!! Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, South London’s Fan Museum presents Street Fans: A Unique Liaison between Street Art and Fan Making. The exhibition opened on 19th September 2017 and is a project which was jointly conceived and organised by The Fan Museum along with Paris-based street artist Codex Urbanus. Together they enlisted the help of an international cast of some 30 street artists pairing them up with fan maker extraordinaire, Sylvain Le Guen in a bid to reinvigorate the craft of fan making.

Hookedblog headed south earlier in the week to visit the Fan Museum and have a look at some of the designs created by the participating street artists along with Le Gun. The Fan Museum is located just a short walk from Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich DLR station with the StreetFans exhibition held on the second floor within the beautiful grade II listed houses built in 1721 which the Museum occupies.

Jacob Moss, Curator of The Fan Museum was at the museum during our visit and of this new exhibition he said:

“Street art has achieved global recognition and the artists participating in this project each bring a unique and potentially transformative perspective to the craft of fan making. Their unconventional, sometimes rebellious designs have prompted Le Guen, arguably Europe’s leading contemporary fan maker, to work in similarly imaginative ways. The exhibition promises a visual spectacle not to be missed.”
