About

Grayson Perry’s groundbreaking ‘lost’ pots have been reunited for the first time to focus on the formative years of one of Britain’s most recognisable artists. Often challenging and explicit, these works reveal the early development of Perry’s distinctive voice that has established him as a compelling commentator on contemporary society.

Grayson Perry: The Pre-Therapy Years is the first exhibition to survey Perry’s earliest forays into the art world, introducing the explosive and creative works he made between 1982 and 1994. In these, he addresses the themes of gender, identity, fetishism, his home county of Essex, and the vagaries of the art world – all of which are integral to Perry’s practice today.

Displaying the pots, plates and sculptures that first made Perry’s name, this exhibition shines a light on the potential of pottery to address radical issues and human stories.

The exhibition contains sexually explicit content and provocative symbolism that some visitors may find challenging. Please email scva@uea.ac.uk for information.
