Pots and Frocks: the world of Grayson Perry.
Silver Jubilee Lecture
Ian Swankie Thursday 19 September 2019

To mark the 25th anniversary of The Arts Society North East Essex, we have a lecture on Grayson Perry which Ian Swankie has subtitled: 'From Essex punk potter to superstar national treasure’.  Grayson Perry RA is now part of the British art establishment.  Guiding us through Perry’s sometimes controversial work and thought-provoking exhibitions, Ian will help us understand the creative thinker inside the flamboyant frocks of Perry’s feminine alter ego, Claire. 

NB   Firstsite, Colchester's newest arts centre, is the venue for this special lecture.  For location and parking information, click here for firstsite's official website.

       We will not be meeting at Weston Homes Community Stadium on this occasion.
