Upcoming Events

KIASMA – Folk Wisdom, Grayson Perry

Begin: 30.05.2018, 17:00
Location: Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma

Award-winning British artist Grayson Perry is a perceptive commentator on contemporary society and culture. His show at Kiasma consists of large tapestries on unexpected subjects: Brexit, aesthetic tastes and masculine ideals, as well as the artist’s personal life. In addition to tapestries, it also includes ceramics and pieces made of cast iron and bronze.

The Folk Wisdom exhibition showcases Perry’s work from the last two decades. Folk wisdom consists of common-sense beliefs passed down orally through generations of ordinary people. Grayson Perry explores subjects that are universally human: identity, gender, social status, sexuality and religion.

Grayson Perry was born in Chelmsford, UK, in 1960. He is a versatile artist and the recipient of many awards and accolades, including Britain’s foremost art award, the Turner Prize (2003). He was made member of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2012.

The 30 May is Kiasma’s 20th anniversary.

The price is 14€ which includes a 60-minute guided tour in English of the exhibition.

After the tour, if you wish, we can move on to a nearby venue for a drink and a chat about the exhibition.
