Martin Creed at Gavin Brown's Enterprise in NYC now thru June 19, 2010

When you see the work of Scottish artist Martin Creed, you never know quite what to expect.  If you don’t believe me, just check out his website.  His latest exhibition at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York just proves, Martin Creed has done it again!  The first part of the exhibition is white walls and an amazing marble floor.  He has arranged over 100 types of marble in stripes across the entire floor of Gavin Brown’s Enterprise!  In essence, the floor is a painting framed by the gallery!  Very cool, according2g.  In the adjacent gallery, is another work of Martin Creed – a film of a flaccid penis becoming erect and back again.  During the film, the curtains to the gallery open and close – letting in light and going dark again.  Friggin’ genius!  The exhibits are located at 601 Washington Street and run through June 19, 2010.

See another picture of the marble floor and a NSFCMP (not safe for closed-minded people) shot of the erect penis after the jump.
