Martin Creed

Martin Creed plays old and new musical works, including music from Work No. 409 The Singing Lift with singer Linda Hirst, to complement his exhibition Toast at Hauser & Wirth. 

On your way into Milton Court, you’ll see Work No. 1637: FEELINGS, a green neon sign created by Martin Creed for the venue in 2013. There is a fascination with the world that comes through in his work. That same quality can be recognised in his music, as he performs songs that are by turns entertaining and shocking – songs that celebrate our existence in all its beauty and daftness.

Toast is Creed’s exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, comprising new sculpture, painting, drawing, tapestry, video, live action and music. Creed also has a longstanding relationship with the Barbican, following his residency at the Centre in summer 2015 as part of the month-long Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening project, and his appearance as part of the Barbican’s season Dancing around Duchamp in 2013.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Hauser & Wirth
