Tour through the exhibition “Martin Creed. Amigos”

Welcome to Amigos, the show created by Martin Creed for Botín and for all those people who want to approach contemporary art from the point of view of confidence. Letting yourself go, opening your senses and enjoying a proposal that goes beyond the walls of the exhibition hall. Are you one of those people? Then go ahead.

Martin Creed was born in Wakefield, England, in 1968. Musician and artist, he uses all the artistic disciplines neccesary to express what he feels and what he wants to transmit in a complete way. Language is not enough for him. We can mix colors superimpose images or play two notes at the same time, but we can never say two words in unison to express two concepts at the same time.

So, from this point onwards, you begin to enjoy elements that overlap and compose a combination of actions in time and space. There is not a beginning and an end and no right way to enjoy this exhibition. Just let yourself go and pay attention to your surroundings. Maybe something has changed and maybe, from now on, your gaze towards the everyday will also change. Try it, enjoy it and come back soon because every time you do it the Martin Creed show will offer you new looks.
