Grayson Perry / Jane Austen in E17

A provocative (and free) Grayson Perry exhibition (pottery, art, video, fashion and tat bought from eBay, and the acclaimed canvas "Print for a Politician") currently running at Manchester City Art Gallery, co-curated by The Creative Consultants (all aged 15-18)...

"I was thinking of all the bickering that's been going on in the world and what fun it would be to label everybody socially. I made a long list of all the different groups I could think of off the top of my head and scattered them randomly on the surface. There are minimalists, chauvinist pigs, elitists, parents, fat people, townies, locals, the old, Sunnis, Shias, fantasists, working class, thick people, satanists. Everything. It shows that we can live with this difference."
