Popular Lecture: Grayson Perry and the Arts Council Collection
Thu 13 October 2016, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
The Arts Council Collection (ACC) has spent the last 70 years supporting emerging artists, curating ground-breaking exhibitions and promoting visual arts in the UK. From the early acquisition of Spirit Jar in 2004, to Grayson’s touring exhibition, Unpopular Culture in 2008, to the purchase of The Vanity of Small Differences in 2012, the ACC has had a long-running and fruitful relationship.
Join ACC Collection Curator, Beth Hughes, to explore the dynamic between artist and collection in the context of the tapestry exhibition.
