Ritual Britain at the Crypt Gallery, London

Exhibition dates: 1st June – 4th July 2021 at The Crypt, London
A collaborative exhibition with Ben Edge

Ben Edge has been researching, documenting and painting British folklore since 2015. Ben and MoBF have a shared passion for the tales and customs of the British Isles and together they have devised a joint exhibition to showcase Ben’s artworks and selected objects from the MoBF collection.

Ritual Britain will feature Ben Edge’s painting series Frontline Folklore, directly inspired by the variety of rituals and ceremonies observed on his travels up and down the British Isles. Objects on display from the Museum of British Folklore collection will include costumes; archive film footage and a selection of ‘Morris Folk’ dolls.
The exhibition will reflect the traditions taking place in Britain today and how they are evolving within contemporary society. Accompanied by a series of film showings and talks, Ritual Britain will consider folklore’s value and role in modern life.
