THE CLOCK by Christian Marclay comes to New Orleans!

Prospect New Orleans presents Christian Marclay’s Internationally Acclaimed 24-hour video installation The Clock at The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans

From November 10 through December 4, 2016, Prospect New Orleans will present the Southern premiere of The Clock, a major work by artist Christian Marclay, in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (900 Camp Street).

Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, The Clock samples thousands of film excerpts from the history of cinema that indicate the passage of time—from clock towers to wristwatches to buzzing alarm clocks—that edited together unfold on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage.

“The Clock is an extraordinary experience and a masterful artwork. Through the history of film and the passage of time, this video tells our shared stories and documents our collective experiences. The community spirit the artwork creates is so vivid—New Orleans is the perfect city to host its Southern premiere! 

-Brooke Davis Anderson, Executive Director, Prospect New Orleans

The Clock will be screened for free in the Contemporary Arts Center’s first floor gallery from November 10—December 4, Tuesday—Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm; and runs continuously day and night on the weekends of November 18  and November 25 from Friday, 5pm through Sunday, 5pm. As seating is limited, admission to the installation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with no time limits for viewers. For a full schedule and live updates on visiting The Clock, visit ProspectNewOrleans.org and Prospect’s Twitter account, @Prospect_NOLA.

Never before exhibited in the South, The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. From the legendary to the obscure, The Clock incorporates scenes of car chases, board rooms, emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, high noon shootouts, detective dramas, and silent comedies.

About Christian Marclay

Christian Marclay has exhibited his work for more than three decades in museums around the world. His 2003 retrospective, which originated at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, traveled to other North American institutions as well as venues in France, Switzerland and Great Britain. The touring exhibition Replay, focusing on his video work, originated at the Cité de la Musique, Paris, in 2007 and was presented at DHC/ART in Montreal (2008). In 2010, the Whitney Museum of American Art organized Festival, a one-person exhibition organized around Marclay’s “graphic scores”—visual works to be interpreted by musicians. As a pioneering turntablist, performing and recording music since 1979, Marclay made a significant impact on the new music scene. He has performed internationally, alone or in collaboration with musicians John Zorn, Zeena Parkins, Lawrence Butch Morris, Christian Wolff, Shelley Hirsch, Günter Müller, the Kronos Quartet, Sonic Youth, and many others.

 The Clock is presented by Prospect New Orleans in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.

The premiere presentation of The Clock in New Orleans is made possible by generous support from Whitney Bank, the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Ralph and Susan Brennan, and an Anonymous gift.  Technical production by Solomon Group, New Orleans.

This presentation of The Clock is part of Prospect New Orleans’ Bridge Years Community Engagement Programs—a series of free workshops, lectures, and activities that lead up to the opening of Prospect.4 (P.4), the fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans’ citywide art exhibition. P.4 will feature more than fifty artists selected by Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, November 11, 2017 and run through February 25, 2018 aligning with the City of New Orleans’s Tricentennial celebration. The last edition of Prospect New Orleans’s triennial, Prospect.3: Notes for Now, took place from October 25, 2014 to January 25, 2015 featuring fifty-eight artists selected by Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans and engaging over 100,000 visitors during its thirteen-week run.

Prospect.4

Prospect.4
November 11, 2017–February 25, 2018 

Preview: November 9–10 
Opening gala: November 10


The fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans' international art exhibition, Prospect.4 (P.4), will open to the public on Saturday, November 11, 2017 and run through February 25, 2018, aligning with the City of New Orleans's Tricentennial celebration. Prospect.4 will host preview days of the city-wide triennial on Thursday, November 9 and Friday, November 10, with the opening gala scheduled for Friday evening, November 10. At the helm of Prospect.4 is Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, and Executive Director Brooke Davis Anderson.

"Our Board of Directors and staff are already working tirelessly on Prospect.4," said Brooke Davis Anderson, Executive Director of Prospect New Orleans. "Artists are making site visits and our many partnerships are being confirmed. The New Orleans community has been energized by their frequent visits with Trevor. We look forward to welcoming our colleagues, supporters, and friends in 2017 to experience contemporary art all around this inspiring city."

Prospect.4 will continue the organization's tradition of showcasing the work of artists from around the globe. Taking into consideration the 300th anniversary of New Orleans's founding and the city's strategic location on the Gulf of Mexico, P.4 will direct its focus southward, placing greater emphasis on art and artists that engage the Global South, specifically from North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and the European powers that colonized this region.

"The rich diversity of New Orleans has developed over a long history of colonization, the trans-Atlantic slave trade, waves of migration and displacement, and Gulf Coast trade routes buoyed by the city's position as the American South's largest port," said Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker. "Artists in Prospect.4 will explore many of these histories and themes and how they relate to contemporary geographical and cultural settings around the world."

Prospect New Orleans has called on seven international artists and curators to serve on a newly-formed Artistic Director's council that will aid Schoonmaker as he enacts this ambitious vision. The Artistic Director's council will recommend artists for inclusion in P.4, contribute to the project's publication, and participate in public programming surrounding the exhibition opening. The council is comprised of:

William Cordova, artist based in Brooklyn and Miami (b. Peru)
Miranda Lash, Curator of Contemporary Art, Speed Art Museum, Louisville, Kentucky (b. USA)
Omar Lopez-Chahoud, independent curator; Artistic Director, Untitled, Miami (b. Cuba)
Wangechi Mutu, artist based in Nairobi & New York (b. Kenya)
Filipa Oliveira, independent curator; Director, Fórum Eugénio de Almeida, Lisbon (b. Portugal)
Ebony G. Patterson, artist based in Kingston, Jamaica & Lexington, Kentucky (b. Jamaica)
Zoe Whitley, Research Curator, Supported by Guaranty Trust Bank, Tate Modern, London (b. USA)

The last edition of Prospect New Orleans's triennial, Prospect.3: Notes for Now, took place from October 25, 2014 to January 25, 2015. The exhibition featured more than 50 artists selected by Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans and engaged over 100,000 visitors during its 13-week run, and concluded in the black. Upon the closing of the exhibition, the Board of Directors announced that Executive Director Brooke Davis Anderson would continue to helm the organization. This year, the Board of Directors added seven additional members: Shawn M. Barney (New Orleans), Sean Johnson (New York City), Allison Kendrick (New Orleans), Deborah Luster (New Orleans), Gregory Morey (New Orleans), Staci Rosenberg (New Orleans) and Francesca Schwartz (New York City).

"The Board of Directors has flourished after the success of Prospect.3 and we are thrilled to welcome our talented and diverse new board members from New Orleans and beyond. We are eager to realize Trevor's vision and share it with our community, and the many visitors to New Orleans," said Susan Brennan, Board Chair of Prospect New Orleans.
