GRAYSON PERRY: “THE MOST POPULAR EXHIBITION EVERSerpentine Gallery-Hyde Park, June the 8th to September the 10th, London.

The British artist Grayson Perry is opening a brand new exhibition showcasing the connection between art and modern society.

The exhibition is focused on how art can link different sections of society to the cultural and political landscape, and looks at relations between people, traditional art forms, and social media.

It was through social media that he conducted an online survey asking people to share their ideas about Brexit. Different pieces of art present at the exhibition will be the result of his trip to pro Brexit and pro Remain parts of the country, showing the country in its currently divided state.
