Museums at Night: Trying it on at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

About

Join for a Museums at Night spectacular!

With performances created by one of the UK’s leading choreographers, Lea Anderson MBE, this Museums at Night will feature stunning costumes by award winning designers.

Based on notions of identity, class and gender, take this opportunity to catch outstanding performances, explore the whole museum, enjoy a drink, encounter surprises and pay a visit to the Grayson Perry exhibition.

Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences features six large tapestries exploring the British fascination with taste and class by one of the UK’s best-known and best-loved artists.

Inspired by Hogarth’s morality tale, A Rake’s Progress, Perry’s tapestries follow the socially-mobile life of fictional character Tim Rakewell from infancy to untimely death. They are crammed with acutely-observed detail and invite us all to consider our own attitudes to class and our positions in society.

The exhibition also includes a number of works from own collections, including historical ceramics, and the original Rake’s Progress print series by William Hogarth and David Hockney.

Museums at Night is the UK-wide festival of ‘lates’ in museums and galleries, produced by Culture24.

Held twice a year, it invites all UK museums, galleries and heritage sites to throw open their doors after hours to showcase their treasures in unexpected ways and this year it explodes to life on 16 – 19 May 2018.
