Grayson Perry Exhibition at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre this Summer
20-21 Visual Arts Centre in Scunthorpe will host Grayson Perry’s ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’ from 7 July to 9 September 2018.
Grayson Perry is a Turner Prize winning British artist, best known for his bold and colourful art.
Perry’s work, The Vanity of Small Differences, explores our fascination with taste and class through six large colourful tapestries. The exhibition will fill the Nave of the former St John’s Church at 20-21.
The tapestries tell the story of a fictional character, Tim Rakewell, as he makes his way up through the British social classes. Each tapestry is made of wool, cotton and silk on a mechanical loom and then coloured-in by hand.
The exhibition is on loan to the gallery from the British Council Collection and Arts Council Collection.
To accompany the exhibition, Grayson Perry worked with Channel 4 to create a documentary series, ‘All in The Best Possible Taste’, following the artist as he researched and produced the tapestries.
As part of the exhibition at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, visitors will be able to see scenes from the Channel 4 documentaries alongside the tapestries themselves.
20-21 Visual Arts Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Special Sunday openings are 8 July and 9 September from 11am to 4pm.
For more information on visiting 20-21, visit the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre website.
