What the Folk Say

This year Compton Verney’s British Folk Art collection appears in unexpected places around our collections and the building as a whole. With artist Paul Ryan, we have invited both artists and curators to choose one Folk Art work to be repositioned and taken out of its usual context. Artists include: Tasha Amini, James Ayres, Daniel Baker, Sir Peter Blake, Sonia Boyce, Faye Claridge, Simon Costin, Jeremy Deller, Carolyn Flood, Jenny Gordon, Antonia Harrison, Susan Hiller, Juneau Projects, Alan Kane, Paula MacArthur, Mike Nelson, Martin Myrone, Paul Ryan and Sarah Woodfine.
