Christian Marclay's The Clock at Tate Modern ( 14 September 2018 – 20 January 2019)


Christian Marclay The Clock is at Tate Modern, 14 September 2018 – 20 January 2019

The Clock by artist Christian Marclay is a 24-hour long montage of thousands of film clips that depict clocks or reference time. The film has been edited so that it is a functioning timepiece. Watch it and you will find that the time displayed on screen will be the same as on your watch or smartphone. However, The Clock is much more than your average time-teller. Here are five reasons why, courtesy of Tate Modern. The Smoke Screen caught this unique piece of film art several years ago in London and will be returning to see it once more (possibly even daring the full 24 hour experience sessions the Tate will be offering); don't miss it.
