Martin Creed at Sadler's Wells

The conceptual artist headlines Frieze Music 2009...

The Turner Prize winning conceptual artist Martin Creed will be choreographing a dance performance to his own music score as part of London's forthcoming Frieze Art Fair, an international commercial art market exposition organised by the contemporary art magazine, Frieze. Work No. 1020, inspired by the critic and ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev's Les Ballets Russes's collaborative work, will be performed during the fair 16 & 17 October at Sadler's Wells Lilian Baylis studio. Creed, who has titled his work with sequential numbers since 1987, also has a music group, Owada, with similarly minimalistic tendencies.
