Grayson Perry:

Grayson Perry, with his unique creativity and power to communicate through seeing, hearing and sensing, concludes our lecture series, speaking about the vital importance of art and creativity in discovering the meaning of our lives.

Grayson Perry is an English contemporary artist, writer and broadcaster. He was the winner of the Turner Prize in 2003 and is now one of the most well-known and popular artists of our time, famous for his ceramic vases, tapestries and cross-dressing, as well as his brilliant observations of the contemporary arts scene, and for dissecting British “prejudices, fashions and foibles”. He has made a number of documentary television programmes and has curated many exciting and challenging exhibitions. Grayson challenges stereotypes and makes us see our lives in new ways. He has published two autobiographies, Grayson Perry: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl and The Descent of Man, written and illustrated a graphic novel, Cycle of Violence, written a book about art, Playing to the Gallery, and published his illustrated Sketchbooks. In 2013 he delivered the BBC Reith Lectures to high acclaim.
