Audio described tour of Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences

An audio described tour of Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences for blind and visually impaired visitors.

The tour will cover Perry’s six large tapestries which explore the British fascination with taste and class.

Inspired by Hogarth’s morality tale, A Rake’s Progress, Perry’s tapestries follow the socially-mobile life of fictional character Tim Rakewell from infancy to untimely death.

Made in parallel with a Channel 4 documentary series, All in the Best Possible Taste, they are crammed with acutely-observed detail and invite us all to consider our own attitudes to class and our positions in society.

The exhibition also includes a number of works from our own collections, including historical ceramics, and the original Rake’s Progress print series by William Hogarth and David Hockney.
