MARTIN CREED - ‘GETTING CHANGED’ - US TOUR 2019/2020
One of the UK’s best known artists, Martin Creed won the Turner Prize in 2001 with The Lights Going On And Off. His work is exhibited across the globe including many works involving live music, dance and the use of words —in the form of word-sculptures, talks and songs.
Most recently he has been working on a new one-person show, "Getting Changed”, which is part-talk, part-concert, part-cabaret. It is the follow-up to the show "Words & Music" which he did at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and has played around the world.
Some of the themes of the new show are borders both personal and national, communication in the form of clothes, and words as clothes for feelings, all put together live in Martin's responsive freestyle way.
‘Creed is a social artist; the true magic of his work lies in the way it interacts with people and
places.’ — Jonathan Jones, The Guardian, UK
‘The tunes are catchy, punk-folk-minimalist amalgams that parody pop music by increasing the simplicity and repetitiveness of much of it, and use and abuse language brilliantly.’
— Roberta Smith, The New York Times, USA
"Getting Changed”, is part of the UNLV Visiting Artists, Designers, and Art Historians Lecture Series. This event is sponsored by the Department of Art, the College of Fine Arts, and Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.
