Explore our collections on Art UK
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new partnership with Art UK, the ‘online showcase for art in every UK public collection’. Our dedicated Art UK collection page features more than seventy fans from the private collection of the Museum’s Founder, Hélène Alexander and The Fan Museum Trust Collection. Each fan is beautifully photographed and enriched with detailed descriptions of its imagery, design, manufacture and context.
In addition to the changing exhibitions taking place at The Fan Museum, we invite you to enjoy a number of virtual exhibitions or ‘Stories’ specifically curated for the Google Arts & Culture Platform. Each exhibition is themed around a particular period or genre and combines dynamic texts with high-resolution, zoomable object images.
Talking Fans: Spring/Summer 2022
Following the success of Season 1 of ‘Talking Fans’, we are pleased to announce a second series of online talks for Spring/Summer 2022.
Delivered by the Museum’s expert staff, each of the four talks will emphasize a particular aspect of the collections or a new area of curatorial research pertaining to fans and fan making.
