For the Frieze New York Viewing Room, and displayed in our London gallery, we are delighted to present Grayson Perry: Ceramics and Prints. This collection includes early dishes and vases from the 1980s and '90s alongside Perry's more recent map-like prints. Like his public persona, these works exhibit contradictory traits of playful humour and vicious wit. In one of his Reith Lectures, Perry observed: 'We now have Bobos - bourgeois bohemians - so everybody has got a little bit of that artisty lifestyle in them now. We've accepted a lot of the things that were weird now are normal.' Much of his art responds to this state of affairs, celebrating weirdness with a post-modern jamboree of iconography and art historical reference. In addition to his reliance upon traditional pottery techniques of spinning and glazing, his vivid imagery and textual additions coalesce to produce a personal style which is colourful and highly recognisable.
 
Alongside this, we also present a selection of curated gallery highlights online, including work by Ben Nicholson, William Scott, Leon Kossoff, Barbara Hepworth, Alexander Calder, Anthony Caro and Pablo Picasso.
 

The full exhibition Grason Perry: Cermics and Prints is available to view in the gallery at 129 Portland Road, London, for further details, click here.
