This summer, experience the largest exhibition ever dedicated to Sir Grayson Perry’s remarkable 40-year career.

Grayson Perry started his journey with pottery evening classes to winning the prestigious Turner Prize, hosting Channel 4 television programs, and authoring acclaimed books is nothing short of impressive. His passion for pottery has allowed him to channel his love for subjects like sex, Punk, and counterculture into an unlikely yet polite and artistic expression.

Presently, Perry stands as one of Britain’s most revered artists and cultural icons. Known for his popular and provocative style, he effortlessly tackles complex ideas with undeniable accessibility and humour. As an artist, he fearlessly delves into universal human themes such as masculinity, sexuality, class, religion, politics, and beyond.

The exhibition offers a captivating selection of Grayson Perry work, including subversive pottery, intricately crafted prints, elaborate sculptures, and breathtaking tapestries that all bear Perry’s trademark wit and social commentary. What sets him apart is his ability to navigate traditional art forms while addressing the pressing and controversial issues of our time.

It is important to note that this exhibition features language and imagery that explore challenging themes, including sex, violence, and identity. Some visitors may find these aspects thought-provoking.
