Julie Cope’s Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry

4 August - 4 November 2018

The exhibition shows two large-scale, colourful tapestries along with an audio recording of The Ballad of Julie Cope. Read by Grayson Perry the ballad illuminates the hopes and fears of Julie Cope, a fictional Essex everywoman, as she journeys through life. The artworks represent ‘the trials, tribulations, celebrations and mistakes of an average life’.

The tapestries were made for the Channel 4 programme Grayson Perry’s Dream House and later acquired by the Craft Council.
