MoMA acquires Marclay’s The Clock
The 24-hour video montage was honored with the Golden Lion at this summer’s 54th Venice Biennale.
But it gets better.
“With his magnum opus The Clock, Marclay highlights the virtuosity of sampling and remixing as contemporary methods that underline the importance of editing as a highly creative process,” Sabine Breitwieser, chief curator of media and performance at MoMA, said in a statement.
All six editions of The Clock have now been sold or are currently in the contracting process.
