Inspired by his three-part documentary Grayson Perry’s Big American Roadtrip, broadcast on Channel 4 in September, in which the artist travels across the US on a custom-built motorbike he designed especially for the journey, these new works explore 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 different communities, from African-American businesspeople in Atlanta to farmers in Wisconsin, 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).
Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip begins on Channel 4 on 23 September.
