Recently a short series of programmes on working class, middle class and upper class taste made by artist Grayson Perry was aired on Channel 4 here in the UK. Here is the first video in the series, now available on Youtube:
It was a fab series, really well-presented, thoughtful and engaging and Grayson Perry has had a lot of good reviews (and apparently also has a contract with Channel 4 to make more programmes YAY!)
The tapestries he made as an outcome of his research for the series are on show right now in the Victoria Miro gallery. As it's near my office - a five minute walk in fact - I went to see the tapestries today as I hugely enjoyed the TV series.
And I took photos!
Some details (they were SO RICH in detail this is just a taster):
There were also three of his vases on show, here are two of them:
This is such a great gallery (beautifully converted from an old warehouse) and there is lovely deck and pool at the back. A nice place to go and have lunch on a sunny day!
So, if you have the chance, go and visit this gallery (the Grayson Perry show is on until some time in August).
