24-Hour Screenings: The Clock

FIlm installation by Christian Marclay

Part of Christian Marclay: The Clock

Called “an abundant, magnificent work” (Financial Times) and “utterly transfixing” (Huffington Post), Christian Marclay’s The Clock unfolds on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage sampling thousands of excerpts from the history of film that indicate the passage of time.

Don’t miss a rare opportunity to view sections of the work that take place in the late-night, overnight, and early morning hours as The Clock runs through its complete cycle.
