Prospect New Orleans presents Christian Marclay’s Internationally Acclaimed 24-hour video installation The Clock at The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.
November 10–December 4, 2016
Open Tuesday–Sunday, 11am–5pm
JUST ADDED! Extended 24-Hour Screening
Friday, December 2 at 11am to Saturday, December 3 at 5pm
Never before exhibited in the South, The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that 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 rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. From the legendary to the obscure, The Clock incorporates scenes of car chases, board rooms, emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, high noon shootouts, detective dramas, and silent comedies.
As seating is limited, admission to the installation will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with no time limits for viewers. For a full schedule and live updates on visiting The Clock, visit ProspectNewOrleans.org and Prospect’s Twitter account, @Prospect_NOLA.
The premiere presentation of The Clock in New Orleans is made possible by generous support from Whitney Bank, the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Ralph and Susan Brennan, and an Anonymous gift. Technical production by Solomon Group, New Orleans.
This presentation of The Clock is part of Prospect New Orleans’ Bridge Years Community Engagement Programs—a series of free workshops, lectures, and activities that lead up to the opening of Prospect.4 (P.4), the fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans’ citywide art exhibition.
