Join Firstsite to celebrate the opening of Grayson Perry: The Life of Julie Cope, a unique presentation consisting of tapestries, woodcuts, ceramics and tiles designed by the Turner Prize-winning artist for A House for Essex (2015), the building designed by the artist in collaboration with FAT Architecture. A House for Essex serves as a secular chapel to the memory of a fictional Essex woman, Julie Cope, created by Perry. Situated overlooking the scenic Stour Estuary in the village of Wrabness in north-east Essex, the House is both an artwork in itself and the setting for a number of artworks by Perry that explore the special character and unique qualities of the county.
