Grayson Perry: Ceramics
Friday 21 September - February 2019
Turner prize winner Grayson Perry established his career in the field of ceramics, taking classical sculptural forms and portraying universally human subjects on their surface. Perry’s work confronts and depicts issues surrounding gender, identity, social status, religion and sexuality, while telling stories of individuals and literary heroes intrinsically linked to British identity.
This exhibition will explore a range of subjects through the display of Perry’s pots, on loan from both national and regional collections.
Also on at Abbot Hall Art Gallery from Friday 9 November - Sunday 17 February is an exhibition of Julie Cope's Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry.
