Event description

Description

The MA in Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute of Art welcomes your attendance to our series of artist and curator talks held at our London campus in the heart of Fitzrovia. Previous speakers include: William Kentridge, Aleksandra Mir, Bedwyr Williams, Saskia Olde Wolbers, Iwona Blaswick and Victoria Miro.

To find out more about upcoming talks within this series, please view our profile page.

Martin Creed (born 1968) is a British artist and musician who lives and works in London.

Creed approaches art making with humour, anxiety, and experimentation, and with the sensibility of a musician and composer, underpinning everything he does with his open ambiguity about what art is.

In 2001, he was awarded the Turner Prize for Work No 227: The Lights Going On and Off, which was exactly what its title describes, in an empty gallery.

Creed has exhibited extensively worldwide and has had major survey shows at Park Avenue Armory, New York, Hayward Gallery, London and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.

In 2016 Creed exhibited ‘Work No. 2630 UNDERSTANDING’ a new 25-foot- tall rotating red neon that was on view at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 6 in New York City, commissioned by Public Art Fund.
