Inhaltsangabe: Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry gives the 2013 Reith Lectures, presented by Sue Lawley. Marcel Duchamp famously declared that a urinal was a work of art. It sometimes seems that anything qualifies, from a pile of sweets on a gallery floor to an Oscar-winning actress asleep in a box. So how does the ordinary art lover decide? In four lectures recorded in front of audiences in London, Liverpool and Londonderry, self-proclaimed "transvestite potter" Grayson Perry discusses what makes him an artist, and asks what are the limits of contemporary art. He reflects on the idea of 'quality', and examines who and what defines what we see and value as art. The mainstream media seems drawn to the idea of an avant-garde: work is described as "cutting edge", artists are "radical", ideas are "ground-breaking", "game-changing" or "revolutionary". Yet, Perry argues, art has lost its ability to shock; we have seen it all before. Whilst recalling his own journey, from playing with paint as a child to being an award-winning successful artist, he reflects on being an outsider. He asks why men and women have made art throughout history, and discusses its central purpose: to heal psychic wounds and make meaning.
About the Author: Grayson Perry is an English artist particularly known for his colourfully decorated ceramic vases. As a teenager he identified as a transvestite, and began to study art. He completed a BA in fine art at Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1982, having exhibited his first piece of pottery in 1980. He went on to develop his pottery skills and, following a solo exhibition of his work in Amsterdam, he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003. He was appointed a CBE 2013 for services to contemporary art. Perry's alter-ego Claire, who wears colourful dresses and feminine clothing, makes regular public appearances. Perry's autobiography of his early years, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl, was published in 2006. Among his numerous television and radio credits are the documentary Why Men Wear Frocks; The South Bank Show; Imagine; All In The Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry; and Desert Island Discs.
