new show at the mills.

a new show is opening at the mills gallery in boston on friday. martin creed: the lights going on and off will be up from september 14th through october 28th with the artist's talk and opening this friday. artist talk starts at 6 and the opening from 7 to 8:30 pm.

the title is descriptive – in the work the lights go on and off, like someone flipping a switch, repeatedly and at set time intervals. Using the existing track lights in the Mills, it will fill the entire 2200 sq. foot space for an installation that is pointedly spare and quietly provocative, with a touch of humor and wonder at the role of inspiration in the creative process. ultimately, the lights going on and off is an experiential art viewing event, one that is both challenging and poetic.
