    Martin Creed: Work No. 2210: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

    An expression of Creed’s desire to communicate, connect, and provoke, the brightly lit scuplture is visually spectacular in its neon audacity, yet it also encourages a more contemplative response. While the phrase is at first familiar and reassuring, it gently suggests that everything might not be alright, pointing to the heightened anxieties and inequities of this moment.
