Help bring Grayson Perry to the Courtauld!

The Courtauld Gallery has been shortlisted for Connect 10, the Culture 24 arts competition which gives venues the chance to win an artist for their Museums at Night event.  Very excitingly, we’re in with a chance to work with Grayson Perry for our late event in May.  

 

Our proposal is to transform the gallery into ‘Grayson’s Bar’, inspired by A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. Like Manet's barmaid, Grayson would be at the centre of a night of merriment and convivial conversation and would work with the visitors to draw together their thoughts about a contemporary version of the painting – creating a collaborative new picture of modern life.  

 

The final winners will be decided by a public vote from 14 to 28 January 2014.

 

To vote, go to http://www.culture24.org.uk/places-to-go/museums-at-night/art461881-Connect10-Vote-Grayson-Perry.  Please help make this amazing event at the Courtauld a reality by voting now and often for the next two weeks, and by spreading the word!!
