John Jones Welcomes The House of Fairytales
John Jones are excited to welcome the House of Fairytales print portfolio to their Projection space. The collection showcases 23 international artists who have produced a series of images inspired by folklore, fairytales and mythology. John Jones has collaborated with The House of Fairy Tales to create a series of beautiful frames that respond to each individual print within the series.
This unique collection was launched at The Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy in April 2008. Over two thirds of the edition is now housed in permanent collections all over the world including The Tate Collection, The National Museum of Wales, The New Art Gallery Walsall, The Government Art Collection and The British Airways Collection.
Established by the artists Deborah Curtis and Gavin Turk, The House Of Fairy Tales is a child-centred artist led project which draws on an extensive team of artists, performers, writers, educationalists, designers, musicians, film makers, dreamers and philosophers to create magical, parallel worlds where learning is play and play is directed learning.
