Grayson Perry Upper Class Low Res

New Grayson Perry Series Begins

Our new three-part series, ‘All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry’, begins on Tuesday 5th June at 10pm on Channel 4.

The series follows Grayson Perry, one of Britain’s leading artists and winner of the Turner Prize, as he goes on safari through the taste tribes of Britain, not just to observe our taste, but to tell us in an artwork what it means. The work he’ll be creating is a series of six imposing tapestries called ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’ – his personal but panoramic take on 21st century British taste.

In each episode, he’ll embed himself with people from across our social spectrum – the working classes of Sunderland, the middle classes of Tunbridge Wells and the upper classes of the Cotswolds – in a bid to get to grips with our differing takes on taste.

“incisive, funny and fearless” (Radio Times)

“His insights are direct and without pretension. Thoroughly refreshing.” (The Guardian)

“affecting and illuminating” ****(Time Out, four stars)

“Grayson Perry shows he is also an insightful social commentator in this highly enjoyable opening episode.” (The Sunday Times)

“Perry’s refreshingly unarty and direct approach proves very effective.” (Mail on Sunday)
