As promised, here is my follow-up post to the post about the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. The third floor of the museum is currently showing a wonderful Grayson Perry exhibit. Unfortunately his fabulous vases did not photograph well behind plexiglass and with all the glare from the lights. But, trust me, they are quirky and beautiful and disturbing and interesting and funny and weird and enormous.
You can watch a short video about the exhibit below:
And here are my photos....
If you're eagle-eyed, you'll notice the sketchbook page that later became an enormous tapestry. I thought the differences between the sketchbook page and the finished tapestry were interesting. (They weren't displayed by each other, which I also thought was an interesting curatorial choice.)
I found Grayson Perry's work grotesque and beautiful and offensive and thoughtful and just really fantastically interesting. If you get a chance to see his work in person, I highly recommend it.
Thanks for stopping by!
