3. Tick Talk: A Panel Discussion about The Clock

Friday, 7:30.

The WAG.

“The most acclaimed work of video-installation art in recent memory, Christian Marclay’s The Clock has drawn an extensive amount of commentary since its release in 2010, raising questions about time, cinema, collage, archives, data, encyclopedic impulses, cultural memory, the parameters of the traditional gallery setting, and more. Panelists Dave Dyment (Toronto), artist; Irene Bindi (Winnipeg), WNDX: Festival of the Moving Image, and crys cole (Winnipeg), Director of Send + Receive: A Festival of Sound, will debate such questions, and facilitate a dialogue about The Clock with the wider public in Winnipeg. The panel will be moderated by Jonah Corne, Film Studies Program, University of Manitoba.”

Cash bar and complimentary popcorn following talk.

Admission to the discussion is Free (does not include admission to the Gallery or The Clock screening).

The gallery will be open ALL NIGHT, so maybe go see The Clock after the talk.
