Christian Marclay's The Clock: 24-Hour Screening
Through Sunday, March 25 | 12 pm
Join us for another twenty-four-hour screening of artist Christian Marclay's The Clock beginning Saturday, March 24, at noon and ending at noon on Sunday, March 25. Awarded the prestigious Golden Lion at last year's Venice Biennale, The Clock is a twenty-four-hour single-channel montage constructed from thousands of moments of cinema and television history depicting the passage of time. Marclay has excerpted each of these moments from their original contexts and edited them together to create a functioning timepiece synchronized to local time wherever it is viewed—marking the exact time in real time for the viewer for twenty-four consecutive hours. The sampled clips come from films of all genres, time periods, and cultures, some lasting only seconds, others minutes, and have been culled from hundreds of films, famous and obscure, into a seamless whole. The result, a melding of video and reality, unfolds with a seemingly endless cast of cameos. By making the film available in its entirety, this free screening will allow The Clock to be viewed in the way Marclay intended.
