Christian Marclay: The Clock

July 5 |  July 26 | August 16 | September 6 | September 13 @ 5PM

On select Fridays throughout summer 2019, The Polygon will stay open overnight for 24-hour screenings of The Clock, providing the chance to see the evening and early morning sections of the film. Mark your calendar to join us on a Friday night this summer!

exhibition dates: July 5 – September 15, 2019

Recognised as one of the most important contemporary artworks of our time, The Clock is an audiovisual tour-de-force. Presented in a custom-built cinema within the gallery, the work montages film and television footage from the last 70 years. The time represented in each clip is synchronised with actual time, allowing The Clock to function as a 24-hour timepiece. Christian Marclay won the coveted Gold Lion Award at the Venice Biennale in 2011 for this now-famous artwork, recently presented at the Tate Modern, London.
