Onward Christian Marclay: “The Clock” at MoMA, New Year’s Eve


The last of artcritical’s A TOPICAL PICK FROM THE ARCHIVES for 2012 could not, in itself, be more archival. Or topical.  It is David Cohen’s review of The Clock by Christian Marclay when it was first screened in New York, at Paula Cooper Gallery, in February, 2011.

The 24-hour montage of clock, watch and other timepiece film clips screens at the Museum of Modern Art through January 21, both during regular museum hours and also, at special screenings, including one on New Year’s Eve, in the original synchronized day-long version.
