Description

Conceived in parallel to Grayson Perry’s exhibition The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!, this catalogue brings together visual material and texts that expand on the themes raised in the show.

Perry is one of the most astute commentators on society and culture working in Britain today and his work provokes and delights in equal measure, providing both autobiographical insights and sharp observations of others. For his Serpentine Gallery exhibition, titled The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!, Perry has created a new series of works investigating concerns that are being discussed at present, both nationally and internationally. The concept of popularity as it applies to celebrity, the role of the artist, political beliefs and the place of the art institution are all addressed in this show, alongside themes of masculinity and national identity in the wake of the Brexit vote.
