About Grayson Perry: Julie Cope’s Grand Tour
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Dovecot presents the work of the ever-popular artist, celebrated Turner Prize winner, and self-styled ‘unapologetic fetishist’, Grayson Perry.
Julie Cope’s Grand Tour comes to Edinburgh bringing the complete set of tapestries designed by Grayson Perry for A House for Essex. The exhibition explores the creation of the house, designed by Perry with FAT Architecture, as a secular chapel dedicated to Julie Cope, a fictional every-woman. Juxtaposing large-scale tapestry and its associations of status, wealth and heritage with current concerns of class and social aspiration, there is also a rare opportunity to listen to Perry’s ‘Ballad of Julie Cope’ which retells in the artist’s own words of ‘the trials, tribulations, celebrations and mistakes of an average life’.
Set in the context of Dovecot Studios, one of the world’s leading tapestry studios, the exhibition offers the opportunity to explore both handwoven and machine-woven tapestries as well as the different crafts, skills, and techniques used to produce these extraordinary works of art.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Grayson Perry: Julie Cope’s Grand Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
