Newly Acquired Grayson Perry Works to Be Shown in Manchester
The two works will be on show in a new display co-curated by a group of 20 young people from Manchester.


MANCHESTER.- Two striking works by Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry will go on display in a new show at Manchester Art Gallery next week.

A vase entitled Jane Austen in E17 (2009) and an etching, Print for a Politician (2005), were recently bought for Manchester.

The two works will be on show in a new display co-curated by a group of 20 young people from Manchester. They will be shown together with a number of unusual objects, text, film and some rarely seen examples of historic costumes, prints and ceramics selected from the gallery’s stores.

The young people involved in curating the show are all between 15 and 18 years old and are known as the gallery’s Creative Consultants. Their project culminates with a workshop with Grayson Perry on 31 January.

The new display is part of Visual Dialogues, a partnership programme managed by Tate Britain working with regional museums and galleries.

Art Fund director Stephen Deuchar said: “We’re excited to see these fun, challenging and provocative works go on show at Manchester Art Gallery, where local people – especially the young people involved in Visual Dialogues – can be inspired by Grayson Perry’s wit and talent.”

Manchester City Galleries bought the two Perry works last year thanks to support from The Goldstone and Livingstone Family Trusts in memory of their parents’ friendship, a £24,025 Art Fund grant and further funding from the MLA/V&A Purchase Grant Fund. Without our collective support the purchase would not have been possible.

Visual Dialogues is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Children, Schools and Families as part of the Strategic Commissioning Programme for Museum and Gallery Education.
The exhibition opens on 1 February.
