The competition, called Museums at Night, pairs 10 galleries across the country with 10 artists who will visit after hours.
For three evenings in May, Mr Creed will deliver a talk at the museum in Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead.
According to the competition website, the talk will provide “a fascinating insight into his artistic practice, interspersed with live musical performance”.
