Grayson Perry, winner of the Turner Prize in 2003, is one of Britain’s best-known contemporary artists. He works in traditional media - from ceramics and cast iron to printmaking and tapestry. His works reference his childhood and life as a transvestite while also engaging with wider social issues – including class and politics, sex and religion.
Perry has written and broadcast widely on the contemporary arts scene, Britain’s obsession with class and taste, and the shifting role of gender in the 21st Century. Join Grayson on Sunday evening at his Gateshead debut as he dissects the nations ''prejudices, fashions, and foibles''.
