In a collaborative Thursday Late, Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Metropolitan University and Off With Their Heads present the artist and musician Martin Creed. Thursday 8th November 2012.
From the high profile Cultural Olympiad bell ringing commission to his recent album release, Martin Creed has always maintained a diverse body of work tempered by the early promise of a Turner Prize. We have invited him to Manchester Art Gallery to talk about his work in the context of an increasing emphasis on musical output and works influenced by compositional techniques, including a recent tour with The Cribs.
For Creed there is no difference between making music and making art.
In conversation with Steven Gartside from Manchester Metropolitan University.
The talk will be at Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, M2 3JL. Beginning at 7.00pm.
Places are free, but limited. They can be reserved here…
Martin Creed and his band will be performing a live set at local arts venue Islington Mill, a deceptive blend of simple lyrics and angular guitar pop should make for a great end to the evening.
Islington Mill, James Street, Salford M3 5HW. Beginning at 8.30pm.
Tickets are £6 in advance/ £8 on the door and are available from Skiddle.com here
