Sun 22 May - Sun 11 SeptemberMartin Creed at Hauser & Wirth

You find yourself here in this world with feelings and thoughts. It’s difficult to accept what you find you do. But if you can it seems to help.’
– Martin Creed

The exhibition will have everything in it: it will present a new body of work that includes paintings, films, drawings, sculpture, music, spoken word and performance, many of which will be created in-situ throughout the five gallery spaces. Creed’s all-encompassing approach blurs the distinction between art and life, the introspective and the extrovert.
