Win tickets to Grayson Perry: The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman at the British Museum
Turner-prize winning artist Grayson Perry curates an installation of his new works alongside objects made by unknown men and women throughout history from the British Museum's collection, until 19th February 2012.
Exploring a range of themes connected with notions of craftsmanship and sacred journeys - from shamanism, magic and holy relics to motorbikes, identity and contemporary culture - The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman presents new works by Grayson Perry alongside objects from the past two million years of culture and civilisation. From the first great invention, the hand axe, to a Hello Kitty pilgrim hand-towel, the exhibition reveals a reality that is old and new, poetic and factual, and funny as well as grim.
Featuring an introduction by Grayson and 200 colour illustrations, the beautifully produced exhibition catalogue captures the wit, philosophy, imaginative world and talents of a contemporary artist who never fails to challenge and unsettle his audience.
For your chance to win one of three pairs of tickets, worth £20, to Grayson Perry: The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman, a copy of the exhibition catalogue signed by Grayson Perry and an exclusive key ring designed by the artist, simply answer the question below.
CLOSING DATE: MIDNIGHT, SUNDAY 11TH DECEMBER 2011
