I defy anyone to listen to Grayson Perry's first lecture … and not to be entertained, or entranced, or illuminated, or provoked. From the very first moment … the man who won the Turner Prize in 2003 took us on a coruscating journey through the modern art world …. His easy conversational style … makes him the most approachable of art world luminaries…. Perry has the tonality of a true polymath, and I'm grateful to the BBC for inviting him into my life. --Simon Kelner, Independent
Being a cheeky geezer in a gown lets [Perry] challenge the right of curators, critics and the art market to determine what is good ... He pursues [his purpose] entertainingly. Every laugh he raises, and there are many, comes with a message … we can forget the shock of the frock and just listen to a really smart guy. --Gillian Reynolds, Telegraph
This first of this year's Reith Lectures, given by the Turner prize-winning potter Grayson Perry, was an absolute delight. Perry is such a fantastic speaker: a performer with gags like a standup, but also a thinker with a point to make … It was genuinely lovely to hear Perry fly. --Miranda Sawyer, Observer
His passion for his subject, his desire to communicate it and his lack of pretension drive away all reservations …. His delivery was so immediate, his enthusiasm so infectious, his relish of sharp phrases and cartoonish quips like a wake-up call on how to think. --Kate Chisholm, Spectator
