The touring exhibition (19 September 2021–30 January 2022) developed by the Holburne Museum in Bath, is the first to celebrate Grayson Perry’s earliest forays into the art world and re-introduces the works he made between 1982 and 1994.
In these, he addresses the themes of gender, identity, fetishism, his home county of Essex, and the vagaries of the art world – all of which are integral to Perry’s practice today.
