Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Money: can't live with it, can't live without it. Grayson Perry turns his beady eye on the rampant beast that is art market capitalism with this new set of ceramics, prints, a tapestry and a carpet. Titled things like 'Very Expensive Abstract Painting', these works poke fun not just at the art market but at gentrification and general middleclassness. In a new turn for the artist, also on display are the first of his works made using the photographs of Richard Young, Martin Parr and Eleni Parousi. Perry was granted access to Parr's archive and chose to work with a set of pictures showing the super-rich on holiday. The result is a table lamp called 'Money on Holiday' featuring the names of tax havens such as Panama and the Cayman Islands alongside the images.
