The Monnaie de Paris is organising the first major solo exhibition in France by the celebrated British artist Grayson Perry, a retrospective of the work from October 19, 2018 to February 3, 2019. Perry’s works in traditional materials such as ceramics, bronze, cast iron, printmaking and tapestry, offer an ironic and darkly humorous look at universal topics such as identity, gender, class, religion and sexuality.
Perry’s honest and candid unpacking of his own identity is part of what drives his appeal far beyond the confines of the art world.
Autobiographical references – to the artist’s childhood, his family and his transvestite alter ego Claire – can be read in tandem with questions about décor and decorum, class and taste, and the status of the artist versus that of the artisan.
Tuesday to Sunday 11am - 7pm
Wednesday until 9pm
Address: 11, quai Conti 75006
