10 November–4 December 2016
Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video installation The Clock (2010) is presented at Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans as part of Prospect New Orleans, the largest biennial of international contemporary art in the United States.
The artwork unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often displaying a watch or a clock.
Brooke Davis Anderson, Executive Director, Prospect New Orleans, said,‘The Clock is an extraordinary experience and a masterful artwork. Through the history of film and the passage of time, this video tells our shared stories and documents our collective experiences.’
