One of the most influent British artists, Grayson Perry, will soon be presented to the Albanian art-lovers through an exhibition in the National Gallery of Arts (NGA). A series of creations focused on the history of taste and class perception by the British will be the epicenter of this exhibition. ‘Small Distinctions Futility’, this is the title of this exhibition that will unfold to the public six tapestries, 8 original engravings of William Hogarth, 20 reproductions and 3 documentaries realized during Perry’s trips in three regions of England that inspired him to realize this exhibition.
In his works the British artist uses traditional media such as tapestry, ceramics and graphics to explore his approach to contemporary social problems. Tirana is the last city of five Western Balkan cities that will host this exhibition.
‘Small Distinctions Futility’ will open the doors to the visitors on November 2 thanks to collaboration with British Council and will welcome the visitors until December 5.
