Invited by Fundación Botín to run a Visual Arts Workshop in 2019, Martin Creed will collaborate with participating artists to create a new musical performance. This will be presented in the exhibition space for the duration of the workshop. The workshop’s completion will coincide with the launch of the new project, which includes the performance of a musical score composed during the workshop, and other contributions by the artist in the exhibition space, as well as all around it.
The work of visual artist and musician Martin Creed (Wakefield – United Kingdom, 1968) has been regularly presented around the world for nearly three decades. The artist, known for the range of his artistic output combining sculpture, painting, drawing, video and performance, was the 2001 winner of the Turner Prize, which he won with “Work No 227 – The lights going on and off.”
