How does the stuff we see in art galleries or the middle of roundabouts come to be made and valued? Drawing on his life as an artist, Grayson Perry sets off to explore the boundaries and tensions at the heart of modern art, with many visual aids along the way. From the slippery subject of quality to the problem of rebelling in a world that thrives on rebellion to the tricky question of what can or can't be a work of art, 'Playing to the Gallery' hopes to give everyone the essential tools with which to understand and appreciate art.
