Extra tickets for the long-awaited debut of Grayson’s Art Club exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery will go on sale on Monday 7 June. This second ticket drop will give visitors the opportunity to explore this extensive new collection featuring work showcased on Perry’s popular Channel 4 lockdown show of the same name between Wednesday 19 May and Sunday 20 June.

Grayson’s Art Club exhibition – which has been extended to Sunday 31 October – will feature work submitted by the general public, celebrities and artists – all created in response to 2020’s unprecedented COVID-19 experience and inspired by the award-winning artist’s Channel 4 show Grayson Perry’s Art Club.

Work from budding artists across the country will share wall space with pieces created by the likes of Harry Hill, Jessica Hynes, Noel Fielding, Phillippa Perry, Jim Moir and Joe Lycett – all chronicling the collective mood of the nation as it battled an unexpected and difficult year. Throughout Perry’s lockdown show, he invited viewers to get creative based on a variety of accessible themes – from portraits, animals and fantasy, to the view from my window and national spirit. The end result is a unique representation of the feelings and mood of an entire country, represented through art.

A batch of free tickets to Grayson’s Art Club exhibition will be available to book from Monday 7 June. To find out more and to book you visit, head to the Manchester Art Gallery website.
