Martin Creed – Members Artist 2015-2017



Artist Martin Creed splashes paint all over the members room at Tate Modern. Creed is the new commissioned artist for Tate Members 2015–17 and has covered every wall and ceiling surface with a series of different wall paintings.

Creed has a long association with Tate. He won the Turner Prize in 2001, exhibiting Work No. 227: The lights going on and off, which has since been acquired for the Tate collection. His Work No.850 saw athletes sprinting through the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain.

Over the last 57 years, Tate Members have made a remarkable difference and helped Tate acquire over 500 important works for the collection and, as a thank you, Tate would like to give you a little something back. Every two years, an artist represented in the Tate collection is invited to become the Tate Members commissioned artist. This unique commission was conceived as a way of recognising and celebrating the vital support Tate Members provide to the four Tate galleries – a remarkable £10.8 million in the last year alone.

The artist’s work will feature on membership material from October 2015 to 2017.
