Christian Marclay's cinematic masterpiece "The Clock" is on view at the Walker this summer through August 25 with two more chances to experience the work overnight in the gallery:
August 8-9 (Fri-Sat) and August 23-24 (Sat-Sun). Winner of the Golden Lion Award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, "The Clock" samples 12,000 film clips from across history, genre, and the globe that relate to time or the experience of a moment in the day—from clock towers to wristwatches to buzzing alarm clocks; waking up late to waiting for a train to sitting down to dinner—that the artist Christian Marclay has edited to unfold on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage. Marclay purposely synchronizes the film with the local time, meaning 11:26 am in "The Clock" is 11:26 am in Minneapolis. "The Clock" has traveled around the world including New York, San Francisco, Jerusalem, Moscow, Zurich, Paris, and Sydney. The Walker is the only venue in the U.S. currently showing "The Clock".
