Grayson Perry: Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman

Grayson Perry curates an installation of his new works alongside objects made by unknown men and women throughout history from the British Museum’s collection. Alan Measles, Perry's childhood teddy is the star at the centre of the show - appearing in different guises and in different time periods. Really enjoyed this show - wasn't sure I was going to, but came away really feeling like I'd seen the collection in new ways and loved Grayson's subtle humour. The craftsmanship throughout is staggering - Grayson's work as well as the work by 'unknown' hands.  British Museum blog
