Grayson Perry: The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!

Serpentine Gallery
Kensington Gardens
London W2 3XA

British artist Grayson Perry, one of the most astute commentators on contemporary society and culture, presents a major exhibition of new work. The works in the show touches on many themes including popularity and art, masculinity and the current cultural landscape. Perry’s abiding interest in his audience informs his choice of universally human subjects. Working in a variety of traditional media such as ceramics, cast iron, bronze, printmaking and tapestry, Perry is best known for his ability to combine delicately crafted objects with scenes of contemporary life. His subject matter is drawn from his own childhood and life as a transvestite, as well as wider social issues ranging from class and politics to sex and religion.

Arthur Jafa: A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions

Serpentine Sackler Gallery
West Carriage Drive
London W2 2AR

The Serpentine is excited to present the work of the acclaimed US filmmaker, cinematographer and artist Arthur Jafa in his first UK exhibition, featuring the work of Ming Smith, Frida Orupabo, and Missylanyus. Across three decades, Jafa has developed a dynamic, multidisciplinary practice ranging from films and installations to lecture-performances and happenings that tackle, challenge and question prevailing cultural assumptions about identity and race. Jafa’s work is driven by a recurrent question: how might one identify and develop a specifically Black visual aesthetics equal to the "power, beauty and alienation" of Black music in US culture?
