Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences

Herbert Art Gallery 

April 22nd / July 3rd

The Vanity of Small Differences is a series of six large-scale tapestries by the Turner-Prize winning artist Grayson Perry, which explore the British fascination with taste and class. Inspired by the 18th century painter William Hogarth's moral tale, A Rake's Progress, Perry's tapestries follow the life of a fictional character called Tim Rakewell, as he develops from infancy through his teenage and middle years, to his untimely death in a bloody car accident.

The tapestries are rich in both content and colour and depict many of the eccentricities and peculiarities associated with life in the UK, from interior design to British cuisine, political protest and celebrity gossip. The composition of each tapestry also recalls early Renaissance religious painting, drawing us in to an art historical, as well as socio-political exploration.

The UK tour of the tapestries is supported by the Art Fund and Sfumato Foundation

Alongside this exhibition, there will be a display of the Herbert's collection of studies made by Graham Sutherland for the monumental tapestry which hangs behind the altar of Coventry Cathedral.

Hansel and Gretel 

Warwick Arts Centre

June 12th / 12:30pm - 1:30pm

Once again, Bamboozle brings a story to enchanting life for young audiences and particularly for those who have learning difficulties. Behind the trees, in the shadows - two glinting lights. Eyes? An owl perhaps, or wolf? Who knows?

It is a time of desperation for the woodcutter's family. War and famine stalk the land. Something needs to happen or they will all perish. Hansel and Gretel take matters into their own hands and, left to their own devices in the forest, discover that they can do more than anyone thought they could. Join them as they encounter dangers, escape from the forest, overcome the evil witch and surprise their parents.
