Creed, a Glaswegian who divides his time between London and Alicudi, Italy, is known for creating Conceptual installations out of mundane items and activities. His best-known work, which won him the 2001 Turner Prize, consisted of an empty room in which a light switched on and off every few minutes. This double show moves from uptown to down, filling Hauser & Wirth's East 69th Street location and Gavin Brown's Enterprise in the Village. Works include portraits made by hanging card stock high on a wall, then jumping, paintbrush in hand, to create a mark—repeating the action until the image is complete.
