Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video is made up of thousands of film fragments that show the passage of time. Images range from watches to clocks to bits of time-related dialogue, all carefully synchronized to tell the accurate time at any given moment. Be part of the Boston premiere that started at 7 pm on September 17, 2011, and runs all day today during the open house. Drop by, check the time, and check it out!


NOTE: For all screenings of The Clock, there are no reservations and seating is first-come, first-served. The Loring Gallery is arranged with couches and room for standing to accommodate a total of 48 visitors at a time.
