Performance: Martin Creed’s “Getting Changed” @ MOCAD Thursday, 9/26
You’ve surely seen the sign outside of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, a statement that is at once hopeful and defiant, and some might even say too optimistic, given the city that it resides in. The piece’s name says enough if you haven’t seen it yet – “Work: No. 790: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT”
Martin Creed is known for his playful and subversive wit and a straightforward approach to making art that asks you to reconsider what art is. Creed is a musician as well as an artist and his one-person show is part-talk, part-concert, and part-cabaret. His bio on Hauser & Wirth’s website simply reads: “Creed is a social artist; the true magic of his work lies in the way it interacts with people and places.”
On Thursday, September 26th, don’t miss a rare opportunity to see this brilliant and audacious artist as he kicks off his US Tour at MOCAD in collaboration with MeanRed. Tickets are $7 (free for MOCAD members), and the show runs from 8-9:30pm.
