Art review: Grayson Perry at the Serpentine Gallery
Grayson Perry was on telly the week before last. Again. Every time he wins another Bafta for his inventive films, or pops up again on Have I Got News for You, or delivers a Reith lecture, or brings out a new book, or appears on Question Time, this astonishingly fertile cross-dresser embeds himself and his madcap attitudes deeper still in our national consciousness. He’s the Danny La Rue of art, the Mrs Brown of contemporary aesthetics. If you want proof that artists can be articulate, knowledgeable, politically agile and clubbable, Perry is your man. And your part-time woman.
