Williamson Art Gallery to feature on C4 ‘Grayson’s Art Club’

The Williamson Art Gallery will feature in Channel 4’s ‘Grayson’s Art Club’ on Friday evening. The special episode will air on Channel 4 this Friday, 4th December following an inspiring exhibition opening at Manchester Art Gallery.

The one-off celebratory episode will allow viewers to take a sneak peek behind the scenes of the curation and development of the Art Club exhibition which will open in the heart of Manchester. In a six-episode run earlier this year, Grayson’s Art Club brought the nation together though art. Grayson’s Art Club was presented by award-winning artist Grayson Perry, alongside his wife, psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry.

The programme features the Wirral artists Amrit & Rabindra Singh (known as The Singh Twins) using the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead, while closed to the public, as a safe environment for a socially distanced interview with Grayson Perry. They appeared in a programme with Grayson Perry earlier in the year and have produced work to be exhibited in the Art Club exhibition.

It will also see Grayson meet in person (socially distanced, of course) with some of the public participants who had their entries selected for the exhibition, as well as some of the celebrity guests and well-known artists who joined Grayson for the series. Their art will feature in the exhibition, alongside the works Grayson and Phillipa produced during lockdown, including the nation’s guardian spirit, ‘Alan Measles’.
