Work by Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry will go on display in Bristol for three months.

Perry creates tapestries, which explore the British fascination with taste and class, inspired by William Hogarth’s morality tale A Rake’s Progress.

They are rich in content and colour, and depict interior design, British cuisine, political protest and celebrity gossip.

Laura Pye, head of culture at Bristol City Council, said: “Grayson Perry is one of the UK’s best-known and best-loved artists and we are thrilled to be bringing another of his fantastic shows to Bristol.

“Crammed with acutely-observed detail, Perry’s tapestries invite us all to consider our own attitudes to class and our positions in society.”

The exhibition, called The Vanity Of Small Differences, will be at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, in Queens Road, from March 31 to June 24.

Entry will cost 4-5.
