The Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry is one of three artists who will show new work in Victoria Miro
Housed in a former furniture factory behind a petrol station near Old Street, Victoria Miro is an unassuming gallery which is easily missed.
But it’s worth seeking out – as it hosts exhibitions by the likes of Yayoi Kusama.
When it re-opens on 15 September, it will exhibit new work by the Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, Maria Berrio and Chantal Joffe.
Perry’s The Most Speciality Relationship (15 Sep-31 Oct) will feature ceramics, tapestry and a large-scale print.
The work is inspired by Perry’s Big American Roadtrip, which will be aired on TV’s Channel 4 in September.
In the documentary, Perry travels across the States by motorbike, meeting farmers in Wisconsin and African-American business people in Atlanta, exploring divisions caused by culture, race and class.
Meanwhile, Colombian artist Maria Berrio will explore themes of different cultures and migration through colourful large-scale works made from washi (Japanese paper).
Flowered Songs and Broken Currents (6 Oct-27 Nov) hones in on the devastation, grief and adaptation of a Colombian fishing community following a disaster.
Later in the autumn, Royal Academy of Art alumni Chantal Joffe (10 Nov-18 Dec) will address aging, invisibility and the relationship between a mother and a child through a series of figurative paintings of her mother and large-small-scale pastel portraits.
As capacity will be reduced, you must book ahead.
