Martin Creed at rennie museum

rennie museum is thrilled to announce three performances by British artist, musician, and Turner Prize winner Martin Creed! Creed’s latest one-person show, “Getting Changed”, is an eclectic hybrid of a talk, a concert, and a cabaret. Performed in Creed’s signature impromptu and witty style, “Getting Changed” explores borders both personal and national, clothing as communication, and words as clothing for feelings. ⁠

Performances will take place daily, November 1-3, 2019 at rennie museum. All proceeds will benefit the Artist in Residence Studio Program.

“The ‘Art room’ is one of the few creative safe spaces left where a child cannot be judged or be wrong, especially today where the pressure of “perfection” is demanded in our technological world. The Art room is a place where a papier-mache bird can have three legs and one eye, or where the sun can set in the east.”

– Bob Rennie
