Julie Cope’s Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry
Dovecot presents the work of the ever-popular artist, celebrated Turner Prize winner, and self-styled ‘unapologetic fetishist’, Grayson Perry.
This is your chance to see Julie Cope’s Grand Tour, one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the summer, before it opens to the public.
Featuring incredible tapestries that illustrate the life of a fictional every-woman, the exhibition also explores A House for Essex designed by Perry with FAT Architecture. There is also an opportunity to listen to Perry’s recorded ‘Ballad of Julie Cope’ which retells in the artist’s own words of ‘the trials, tribulations, celebrations and mistakes of an average life’.
Tickets costs £15 (+ booking fee)
10:30 – Tea and coffee (included in ticket price)
11:00 – Tour and preview of exhibition
12:00 – Event ends
Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
