Martin Creed Ocula Conversation Martin Creed By Stephanie Bailey, London

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. Creed’s performance was short, sweet and bitter: it consisted of the artist strumming a banjo and repeating the phrase...

Growth has slowed, sales are down, and people are nervous, especially in the wake of the disastrous U.S. presidential election. But all of that was belied by...

Shanghai gold rush part one: West Bund Art & Design Related Press Shanghai gold rush part one: West Bund Art & Design 29 November 2016, RanDian

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. The leases though are only for 5 years and the condos are already encroaching. Only 5? Yes, but...
