New work by Grayson Perry, including ceramics, a tapestry and a large-scale print, are inspired by his forthcoming three-part documentary Grayson Perry's Big American Roadtrip (w/t), broadcast on Channel 4 in September. The series, in which the artist travels across the US on a custom-built motorbike he designed especially for the journey, explores some of the biggest cultural and political fault-lines in the country. Works respond to the programme's themes and conversations as Perry spent time with people from very different walks of life, from farmers in Wisconsin to African-American businesspeople in Atlanta, to understand how Americans today view issues of identity, race, money and class—and what might be done to overcome the divisions in their country (and in our own).
