“Goodman Davis Lecture: Martin Creed ‘Getting Changed’”
Martin Creed is known for winning the Turner Prize in 2001 with The Lights Going On And Off, and over the following years for 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.
