In 2011, Christian Marclay’s “The Clock” was premiered at the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York. The 24 hour film montage was constructed by Marclay using thousands of different cinematic moments from 70 years of film history that all synchronized in reference to the local time of wherever one was watching it. The film of Marclay’s has been screened before but this summer it is returning to the heart of NYC to be screened once again in Lincoln Center. The opening date is set for July 13th and will run throughout the summer till August 1st in the glass-walled David Rubinstein Atrium on Broadway between 62nd street and 63rd street. The screenings of The Clock will all be free and scheduled for the public to come see Tuesdays to Thursdays between 8am-10pm, and continuously from 8am on Friday until 10pm on Sunday all synchronized with New York City’s time.
Although it won’t be screening for a little over a month, it’s good to know about this beforehand because it’s expected that crowds of people will be showing up to get their chance to see this spectacular piece for themselves. Don’t miss out on getting in on this experience! Also if you wanna peep a 3-minute excerpt from the flick scroll down.
