The first of three 24-hour screenings of the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s latest exhibit will begin this Friday.
Christian Marclay’s The Clock opened earlier this month and features a real time montage of thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour period.
The film runs from Friday, November 1 at 6 p.m. to Saturday, November 2 at 6 p.m. The event is costume optional in the spirit of Halloween and a cash bar and treats are available from 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Friday.
“It’s an incredible feat of editing that saw six editors working for three years with 100,000 video clips to create this masterpiece,” said Stephen Borys, WAG director and CEO. “While the video clips that run overnight are not entirely of a ghoulish nature, Marclay plays homage to some of your favourite horror movies best seen during the night showing.”
Regular gallery admission applies.
