Grayson Perry is to appear at this year’s Sheffield Documentary Festival, where he’ll be talking about his passion for docs and offering some revealing insights into his creative process.
Artist Perry won the Turner Prize in 2003 for his beautiful and often vividly satirical pots. Since then, he’s also won acclaim for his documentaries, where he combines a sharp line in social commentary and an artist’s eye for the telling details of modern British life.
His Channel 4 series, All In The Best Possible Taste, made with Swan Films’ founders Neil Crombie and Joe Evans, was an entertaining and affectionate exploration of the nation’s twin obsessions of taste and class. The series won Grayson a BAFTA and a Grierson Award. Now he’s at work with Swan on a new series, Who Are You? exploring portraiture and identity.
The series will be accompanied by a major new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and will air on Channel 4 in the autumn.
