The Charms of Linconshire Exhibition Catalogue

£29.99

Product description

This is the illustrated catalogue for the exhibition which was curated by Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, for his first show as both curator and exhibitor, which took place at The Collection in Lincoln in February 2006.
The Charms of Lincolnshire ran from February 4 to May 7 2006 and Perry spent two years selecting objects from the collections of Lincolnshire museums and created his own works inspired by them, combining new and old objects to create a unique display of contemporary art.
As well as his trademark ceramic work he also used embroidery, photography and, for the first time, cast iron: a cast iron sculpture of a child’s coffin, called Angel of the South, formed a focal point.

“We are delighted with the show that Grayson has curated for us,” said Jill Iredale, Curator of Contemporary Visual Arts. “He has made beautiful new works that are intimately connected to the museum objects and created a haunting and powerful exhibition that I think visitors will absolutely love.”

A scarce copy which, although a little stained on the back cover, remains tight, sound and vividly illustrated throughout.
