Unpopular Culture PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Unpopular Culture free pdf For over a year, Perry has researched the Arts Council Collection's holdings. Unsurprisingly for an artist who has always positioned himself on the margins of the art world, the 'tranny potter from Essex' has found himself drawn to art made 'before British art became fashionable'. He favours an art that conveys a sense of tradition, restraint and quiet accomplishment - a selection featuring modern British paintings, sculpture and photographs that embody a certain nostalgia, while exploring notions of place and environment, issues of identity and class, ideas about form. Rather than retreat into a world of rose-tinted romanticism, Perry presents an alternative view of British art, one that reassesses the relationship between past and present, and questions the boundaries between the radical, the conservative, and the radically conservative.Conventional assessments of post-war British art tend to pursue a standard art historical path with a strong scholarly focus."Unpopular Culture" seeks an alternative view, one that moves away from facts, dates and movements and towards a more subtle investigation of the mood, pace and preoccupations that underline British art of this period. About 70 works from the Arts Council Collection will be illustrated - painting, sculpture and black and white photography.

About Perry Grayson

Grayson Perry was catapulted into the public consciousness in 2003 when he won the Turner Prize, accepting his award dressed as his transvestite alter ego, Claire. A unique figure in the international art scene, Perry is best known for his ceramic coil pots, which he adorns with subject matter ranging from his childhood in rural Essex, his transvestism to his reflections on British art and society.
