Rediscovering a Unique Liaison: The Museum’s pioneering 2017 Street Fans project launches via Google Arts & Culture.

InformationAbout this image

In 2017 The Fan Museum, with support from Codex Urbanus, launched a pioneering initiative to put the heritage craft of fan making back on the map here in the UK. ‘Street Fans’ brought together twenty nine street artists and one contemporary fan maker for an innovative, exhibition-based project enriched with outreach activities designed to engage diverse audiences.

Fan maker Sylvain Le Guen refashioned more than 60 original fan designs by the participating artists, creating a unique collection of ‘street fans’ subsequently displayed in a landmark exhibition which drew record audiences to the Greenwich-based Museum.

Three years on since the project completed, ‘Street Fans’ is now reimagined as a virtual exhibition on the Google Arts and Culture platform. Combining informative texts, artists’ commentaries and dynamic photography, the online presentation evokes the rebellious, exploratory aspects of the original Street Fans project.
