Grayson Perry - Provincial Punk - Curator-led tour

  • Turner Contemporary |
  • Guided Tour |
  • Wednesday, 1 July 2015 - 10:30

Perry is one of the most prominent and incisive commentators on contemporary society and culture. His uniquely subversive art combines autobiographical reference, from his childhood to alter-ego Claire, with wry social commentary on class, taste, consumerism, war, and art versus craft.

See more than 50 works in this focussed survey of Perry’s practice, only on show in Margate. From a young artist forging his own language in Thatcherite 1980s Britain to his work today, the exhibition explores the idea of ‘Provincial Punk’ as an anti-elitist and teasingly unfashionable spirit of creativity at the heart of his work.

The group will have a curator-led tour of the exhibition.

This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
