Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

About

A series of six large tapestries by the Turner-prize winning artist Grayson Perry, which explore the British fascination with taste and class.

Inspired by Hogarth’s moral tale, A Rake’s Progress, Perry’s tapestries follow the life of fictional character, Tim Rakewell as he develops from infancy through his teenage and middle years, to his untimely death in a bloody car accident.

The rich tapestries depict many of the eccentricities and peculiarities associated with life in the UK, from interior design to British cuisine, political protest and celebrity gossip.

A three-part documentary, All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry, accompanies the exhibition. It follows Perry as he develops his ideas for the tapestries and travels to towns and cities across the UK, investigating what ‘taste’ is and how it differs from place to place.

Arts Council Collection, Southbank Centre London and British Council © the artist. Gift of the artist and Victoria Miro Gallery with the support of Channel 4 Television, the Art Fund and Sfumato Foundation with additional support from AlixPartners.
