Turner prize winner Martin Creed returns to the Barbican’s programme in January 2019, performing alongside Salomé Quartet in a concert at Milton Court Concert Hall, which features the UK premiere of ‘Work No. 2890: Bum piano’ and a new work for string quartet and music from ‘Work No. 409: The Singing Lift.’
This concert forms part of the wider programming around Creed’s exhibition ‘Toast_’_, on view at Hauser & Wirth London from 30 November 2018 – 9 February 2019 including new sculpture, painting, drawing, tapestry, video, live action and music. Creed has become known for hugely varied work which is by turns uncompromising, entertaining, shocking and beautiful. Milton Court is home to Martin Creed’s‘Work No. 1637: FEELINGS’– a green neon sign in the public foyers that reads ‘feelings’ as its title suggests, and which was commissioned by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and developed in collaboration with Barbican Art Gallery. Martin Creed returns to the Barbican following his residency in summer 2015 as part of the Centre’s month-long ‘Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening’ project, curated by Doug Aitken; and his appearance as part of a cabaret night during the Barbican’s season‘Dancing around Duchamp’ in 2013. Tickets £20 plus booking fee. Produced by the Barbican in association with Hauser & Wirth.
