If your New Year’s plans aren’t made yet, why not bring in 2014 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery?
The final days are ticking down on Christian Marclay’s The Clock, which will soon end its local run. The WAG is celebrating the exhibit with a 24-hour screening of the renowned exhibit to form a day-long montage of the cinematic piece, which took three years to assemble 100,000 video clips.
Visitors can visit the gallery anytime between December 31 at 6 p.m. and January 1 at 6 p.m. The festivities will continue all night with a cash bar, snacks and music.
“The Clock’s run at the WAG is coming to an end, and this is a perfect way to fit in a final viewing and greet 2014 with all of your favourite movie stars,” said Stephen Borys, director and CEO of the Winnipeg Art Gallery. “Visitors are free to come and go all night, making the WAG a great New Year’s Eve destination for a small or large part of your evening plans.”
The Clock closes at the WAG on January 5, 2014. Regular gallery admission applies.
