Martin Creed Ocula Conversation Martin Creed

The first time I ever saw Martin Creed in person was at the epic Gavin Brown and Herald St party at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2014, at which Creed was the opening act for the amazing Yo Majesty and legendary 2 Live Crew.

West Bund is in a remote bit of Xuhui, a long way away from the Waitan (the Bund). It was once devoted to heavy industry and even had an airport, but now it’s an 8 km-stretch of arts precinct and the former aircraft factory is an art fair pavilion.
