Just Have to Share - Who Are You? Portraiture by Grayson Perry

Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry turns his attention to portraiture and British identity for this display of new works, including a self-portrait and a tapestry, made during his Channel 4 series Who Are You?
Fourteen portraits of diverse individuals who are all trying to define who they are - families and groups, including politician Chris Huhne, a young female-to-male transsexual, Northern Ireland Loyalist marchers and X-Factor contestant Rylan Clark, have been inserted into the National Portrait Gallery’s nineteenth and twentieth century rooms on Floor 1. Admission is Free from 25th October to 15th March 2015.

Grayson Perry: Who Are You? is a series of three sixty-minute films broadcast this autumn on Channel 4. Find out more about the series here.
