Grayson Perry was appointed UAL Chancellor in 2015. Grayson, who is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading contemporary visual artists, has lectured at the University, and is a regular attendee at the University’s Summer Shows. Central Saint Martins students design a dress for Grayson every year, based on a brief written by him. He usually makes public appearances as ‘Clare’, and has explored his identity in this way since he was a child. A lot of Grayson’s work explores intersections between concepts of masculinity and social class and he has helped to bring debates about gender identity into mainstream media. He recently presented a three-part television documentary Grayson Perry: All Man, exploring the subject of masculinity by visiting people living out some of the most stereotypical macho roles in British society.
