This exhibition marks the first Midwest presentation of 'The Clock' since its London debut in 2010. 'The Clock' is a captivating 24-hour looped video that plays in real-time. Thousands of film references to time and timepieces have been compiled to create a compelling moving image illustration of the minutes of a passing day.
The Wexner Center will show 'The Clock' during regular gallery hours. In addition, on selected Saturday nights during the run of the show, the center will stay open over the 'The Clock’s' full 24-hour sweep (26 January, 9 February, 2 March and 6 April). The piece may be open on other selected evenings and weekday mornings as well, in conjunction with other center events.
A publication produced by the Wexner Center will accompany the exhibition, with texts by Bill Horrigan, the Wexner Center’s curator-at-large and Kris Paulsen, assistant professor of art history at Ohio State University.
