Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

Fin­land’s lead­ing con­tem­po­rary art gallery is hold­ing a ret­ro­spec­tive of Grayson Perry this sum­mer. The show in­cludes Perry’s witty ce­ram­ics, sculp­tures, ta­pes­tries and dresses, tack­ling gen­der, iden­tity, class and re­li­gion. The show com­prises nearly 50 works, which in­clude clas­si­cal ce­ramic pots and large ta­pes­tries on un­ex­pected sub­jects: Brexit, aes­thetic tastes and mas­cu­line ideals, as well as the artist’s per­sonal life. In ad­di­tion to ce­ram­ics and ta­pes­tries, it also in­cludes pieces made of cast iron and bronze.

The ex­hi­bi­tion later moves to the re­vamped 11 Conti Mu­seum at the Mon­naie de Paris (from 19 Oc­to­ber - 3 Fe­bru­ary 2019).
