Grayson Perry is a transvestite potter and one of the most beloved British contemporary artists. When he was asked to deliver the Reith Lectures for the BBC, he turned the occasion into a hilarious debunking of the Art Establishment.

Perry points out how insular and incestuous the art world has become, how meaningless discussions of quality and taste have become, and why we even need Art anymore. He also describes his own career as an artist and the biases and absurdities he has faced.

If you ever wonder what the heck contemporary art is really about, this wonderful series will entertain, challenge and inspire you. Listen to the podcast as you make your own contemporary art. I do!
