This summer, Quay Arts invites visitors to explore work by Turner Prize winning artist and musician Martin Creed. The exhibition will show eight signature pieces by Creed, who won the Turner Prize in 2001 for his controversial Work No.227 The lights going on and off. Creed's work often surprises and challenges us on the nature of contemporary art and twists our expectations with humour, repetition and, often, impulsive works.

The works on display are taken from ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art acquired for the nation by Tate and The National Galleries of Scotland through the generosity of Anthony d'Offay with additional support from funders, including the Art Fund. The ARTIST ROOMS tour programme, now in its sixth year, is showing at 18 museums and galleries across the UK in 2014.

The tour is made possible thanks to the support of Arts Council England and the Art Fund. To find out more information about ARTIST ROOMS On Tour please visit www.artfund.org/artistrooms. To see the full ARTIST ROOMS collection please visit www.tate.org.uk/artistrooms and www.nationalgalleries.org/artistrooms
