Grayson Perry Tapestries

Cirencester

20th May to 16th July 2017

Opening hours are:

Mondays to Saturdays 9am to 5pm

Sundays 10am to 4pm

ADMISSION  FREE

Recently acquired by the Crafts Council as an exciting new addition to its National Collection of contemporary craft*, this pair of tapestries went on public show for the first time at Collect: The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects at the Saatchi Gallery, London in February and will be exhibited at New Brewery Arts from 20th May to 16th July 2017.

The Essex House Tapestries: the life of Julie Cope (2015) were made for ‘A House for Essex,’ designed by Grayson Perry and FAT Architecture. The house was conceived as a mausoleum to Julie Cope, a fictitious Essex ‘everywoman’ whose experiences audiences throughout the country can relate to. Julie is the central character of The Ballad of Julie Cope, written by Perry and inspired by the people he grew up among. This touring exhibition features the only pair of these tapestries in a public collection, and tell Julie's story through Perry's recognisably vibrant and detail-orientated style.  As the only chance to read and hear the ballad outside of the House for Essex, audiences will be able to explore ideas of regional identity, the effect of social history on the individual, and class mobility, through her journey.

* Made possible with support from the Art Fund (with a contribution from The Wolfson Foundation), Victoria Miro and Crafts Council Patrons.
