With its strong focus on art and design, QT Sydney, one of Australia’s most cutting-edge design hotels and the official hotel partner of Sydney’s iconic Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) have collaborated with the MCA with a curated stay for art lovers to celebrate the work of internationally renowned artist and Turner Prize recipient, Grayson Perry.
As part of the Sydney International Art Series, Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career will present the first major survey exhibition in the Southern hemisphere at MCA and to celebrate QT Sydney has formed the ultimate art experience.
Grayson Perry is one Britain’s best known artists of his generation, infusing his artworks with a sly humour and a reflection on society past and present. Acclaimed for his ceramics, sculptures, prints, drawings, tapestries – and cross dressing, there is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as “Claire” his alter-ego, often appear. Forging a distinctive career that sits apart from his peers, Grayson favours a more flamboyant, accessible aesthetic that blurs the division of high art and popular culture.
Since opening in September 2012, QT has transformed the city’s hospitality scene and, with its unique design and art-centric interior, has established a reputation for being a venue for showcasing contemporary artists and a wildly eclectic collection of new medium art throughout the hotels public areas, lifts, lobbies, dining spaces and guest rooms.
