Grayson Perry: Playing to the Gallery: The Reith Lectures
Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry gives the 2013 Reith Lectures, presented by Sue Lawley. Marcel Duchamp famously declared that a urinal was a work of art. It sometimes seems that anything qualifies, from a pile of sweets on a gallery floor to an Oscar-winning actress asleep in a box. So how does the ordinary art lover decide? In four lectures recorded in front of audiences in London, Liverpool and Londonderry, self-proclaimed transvestite potter Grayson Perry discusses what makes him an artist, and asks what are the limits of contemporary art. He reflects on the idea of `quality', and examines who and what defines what we see and value as art. The mainstream media seems drawn to the idea of an avant-garde: work is described as cutting edge , artists are radical , ideas are ground-breaking , game-changing or revolutionary . Yet, Perry argues, art has lost its ability to shock; we have seen it all before. Whilst recalling his own journey, from playing with paint as a child to being an award-winning successful artist, he reflects on being an outsider. He asks why men and women have made art throughout history, and discusses its central purpose: to heal psychic wounds and make meaning.
