Grayson Perry: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl
Talk and Tour | Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
Thursday 30 June 2016 - 10:45 until 12:30
Grayson Perry's tapestry series The Vanity of Small Differences is his interpretation of the taste tribes of Britain. The six vibrant and highly detailed tapestries on display at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum bear the influence of Hogarth's moralising series, A Rake's Progress.
Grayson’s friend and collaborator, Wendy Jones talks exclusively at this event, providing a unique insight into the life of the artist based on her biography, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl.
Visitors may tour the exhibition of Grayson Perry’s large-scale tapestries before and after the lecture. After the talk, Rosie Addenbrooke, Exhibitions and Events Manager, will introduce the Grayson Perry exhibition.
This event has been organised by the Warwickshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
