The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit announces the reinstallation of Martin Creed’s exterior neon artwork Work: No. 790: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT. Originally part of MOCAD’s Words Fail Me exhibition curated by Matthew Higgs in 2007, the piece brought a bright light to what was then a dark corner of Woodward Avenue. The piece was a beloved representation of Detroit’s promising future and a call to passerbys to be positive despite the negative perceptions of Detroit in 2007. With the changes taking place in Detroit and with the Museum’s 10th anniversary, MOCAD sees this as the perfect time to invite Creed to show the piece again.

Work: No. 790: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT is a large word-based sculpture made in white neon consisting of a single line of unpunctuated text that reads ‘EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT’. It has been shown in various locations around the world including the Tate Modern in London and the National Galleries of Scotland. Martin Creed is one of the most influential and exciting British artists today, who uses sculpture, neon, painting, video and performance. Awarded the Turner Prize in 2001.
