Playing to the Gallery: Helping Contemporary Art in its Struggle to be Understood by Grayson Perry

Playing to the Gallery: Helping Contemporary Art in its Struggle to be Understood by Grayson Perry

Now Grayson Perry is a fully paid-up member of the art establishment, he wants to show that any of us can appreciate art.

'It's easy to feel insecure around art and its appreciation, as though we cannot enjoy certain artworks if we don't have a lot of academic and historical knowledge. But if there's one message that I want you to take away it's that anybody can enjoy art and anybody can have a life in the arts - even me! For even I, an Essex transvestite potter, have been let in by the artworld mafia.'

Based on his hugely popular Reith Lectures and full of words and pictures, this funny, personal journey through the art world answers the basic questions that might occur to us in an art gallery but seem too embarrassing to ask.
