Rethinking folk.

Skull Crash Helmet by Stuart (Sam) Hughes from the exhibition Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK, on view through November 13 at Kunsthalle Basel. Curated for the Barbican by Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller and artist Alan Kane, the exhibition is less about folk art than contemporary culture, including objects leftover from protests, regional festival/competitions turned performance art, and ritual objects. More images and clips from a guided tour of the show by Deller here.
