05julAll Day15sepThe Clock by Christian Marclay

Event Details

This summer only, The Polygon Gallery will be transformed into a custom-built cinema, showing a film that runs for 24-hours which also functions as a real timepiece. The Clock by Christian Marclay has been called “a masterpiece of our times” and “maybe the greatest film you’ve ever seen”. The Clock montages film and television footage from the last 70 years, intricately edited in both its visuals and sound. Thousands of film fragments come together collaged into a full day of modern life, mirroring the experiences of our lives and unraveling a narrative that feels as if it will continue on forever.

On select Fridays, The Polygon will stay open for 24-hour screenings.  Mark your calendar to join us on a Friday night this summer!

Admission is by donation.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm. Closed Monday.

24-Hour Friday Night Screening Dates:
