Summary
"Now Grayson Perry is a fully paid-up member of the art establishment, he wants to show that any of us can appreciate art ... Based on his hugely popular Reith Lectures and full of pictures, this funny, personal journey through the art world answers the basic questions that might occur to us in an art gallery but that we're too embarrassed to ask. Questions such as: What is 'good' or 'bad' art--and does it even matter? Is art still capable of shocking us or have we seen it all before? Can you be a 'lovable character' and a serious artist--what is a serious artist anyway? And what happens if you place a piece of art in a rubbish dump?"--Jacket
