Tapestry, Taste and Teddy Bears: Uncovering the World of Grayson Perry

  • Pera Museum, Istanbul Istanbul Turkey (map)

Grayson Perry – unconventional, media-savvy and craft-obsessed – has risen in recent years from being a controversial outsider figure to an artist at the very heart of the establishment. Now a Royal Academician and CBE, his themes have however remained remarkably consistent ever since his student days as a squatter in London. In this lecture, given on the occasion of Perry's first exhibition in Turkey, we uncover three of his recurring themes: taste and class, the inner life of the mind, and religion.
