Popular and provocative, Grayson Perry makes art that deals with difficult and complex ideas in an accessible and often funny way. He takes on big issues that are universally human: masculinity, sexuality, class, religion, politics and more. Perry has gone from taking pottery evening classes to winning the Turner Prize, presenting television programmes and writing acclaimed books. Smash Hits is the biggest ever exhibition of his work, covering his 40-year career. On view will be subversive pots, brilliantly intricate prints, elaborate sculptures, and huge, captivating tapestries – all imbued with Perry's sharp wit and social commentary.
