Fans and the Art of Advertising

Every day

Location: The Fan Museum, 12 Crooms Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8ER

Time: 11:00am - 5:00pm

Cost: Adult £4, Concession £3, Family £10

The Fan Museum shows the pivotal role of fans in advertising and consumer culture.

In the growing consumer culture of the early 20th century, fans displayed seductive designs, Art Deco elegance, and works by renowned fashion illustrators. 

The exhibition, Seduced! Fans and the Art of Advertising, reveals the important role of commercial art in generating and sustaining a culture of consumption among the growing middle classes.

Focusing on the aesthetics of Art Deco, the exhibition includes a colourful array of fans made to promote leisure activities such as travel, dining and  shopping. These luxury fans evoke a remarkable age of decadence, glamour, exoticism and the birth of modern consumer culture.
