Martin Creed Plays Chicago

Drawings of Martin Creed

Posted August 21, 2012

Teen Creative Agency Members meet weekly at MCA Chicago to explore themes of critical interpretation, public speaking, and cultural participation.

Teen Creative Agency members met with Martin Creed during his recent visit to the MCA. Together they engaged in an open dialogue as he prepared paintings for his upcoming record release. As the teens reflected on their interaction later, they clearly remembered the content of the conversation (mostly, they talked about boxes) but had trouble coming to a consensus about what Creed looked like. So, from memory, they each drew pictures of Creed—does he have a mustache? Is he tall or short? Everyone agreed that his hair was memorable.
