  GALLERY EXHIBITIONS:
Like a Bird, Not a Feather
JUNE 2016 - SEPTEMBER 2016
The title of this exhibition, a phrase by Paul Valery which is quoted by Italo Calvino in the notes of his Norton Lecture on “lightness”, expresses the idea that to fly, to leave the bounds of gravity, to reach higher and to head for the skies is to expend effort, concentration, and volition.
MARTIN CREED
JUNE 2013 - JULY 2013
In via Orti D'Alibert, the artist shows a new series of works, acrylic paintings, portraits, abstract compositions and a self-portrait on paper, as well as two sculptures in cardboard and iron. At via della Lungara 42: Work No. 1584: Half the air in a given space, one of the artist’s iconic balloon installations. In the new gallery at vicolo dei Catinari 3 Creed presents a grand series of sculptures, composed of iron beams stacked according to diverse structural logic, based on the industrial standard dimensions, specifically conceived for this space.
New Work
MAY 2008 - SEPTEMBER 2008
Galleria Lorcan O'Neill Roma
Martin Creed’s new wall paintings were especially conceived for the gallery so as to create a pinstriped space where the viewer loses his conception of depth and gravity.

MARTIN CREED - The Back Door, Park Avenue Armory, New York
JUNE 2016 - AUGUST 2016
Park Avenue Armory presents a solo exhibition by Martin Creed - "The Back Door". The artist continues his ongoing exploration into rhythm, scale, and order in his largest installation in the U.S. to date, a survey of his work from its most minimal moments to extravagant, larger-than-life installations. Utilizing both the Wade Thompson Drill Hall and the historic interiors of the building, Creed reimagines the space with opening and closing doors, curtains, a slamming piano, and balloons, amongst other new works made for this exhibition.
Down Over Up
JULY 2010 - OCTOBER 2010
The Fruitmarket, Edinburgh
A major exhibition of recent work by Martin Creed in Scotland with catalogue. The show focuses on stacking and progression - stacks of planks, tables, boxes, series of paintings. A highlight of the exhibition is a new commission in which Creed turns the Gallery's staircase into a synthesizer, with each step sounding a different note on the scale as the audience walks up or down.
Things
FEBRUARY 2010 - APRIL 2010
The Common Guild, Glasgow
Things is a selection of works by Martin Creed from a period over 15 years. Utilising commonplace materials from copy paper and cardboard boxes to dining room tables, carefully ordered according to size, Creed presents the spectrum of possibilities we are offered every day and highlights the absurdity that can be found in the ordinary.
