DESCRIPTION

A survey of Martin Creed's playful, thought-provoking art.

Over the past two and a half decades British artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art.

Winner of the 2001 Turner Prize, Creed is recognised around the world for his minimalistic approach that strips away the unnecessary, but preserves an abundance of wit, humour and surprise.

Crossing all artistic media and including music, his art transforms everyday materials and actions into surprising meditations on existence and the invisible structures that shape our lives.

This exhibition will be the first major survey of Martin Creed's work, spanning its most minimal moments and extravagant room-sized installations.

Martin Creed was born in Wakefield in 1968 and currently lives and works in London.

This exhibition includes works containing nudity and some adult content. Visitors may be required to queue in order to enter some installations.
