Our May Artcast examines Christian Marclay's The Clock, a twenty-four-hour masterpiece of appropriation. In this episode we hear from curator of media arts Rudolf Frieling, exhibitions technical manager Steve Dye, gallery attendants, and SFMOMA visitors. The second chapter focuses on The Long Now Foundation's 10,000-Year Clock. Alexander Rose, the organization's executive director and project manager, explains the mechanics of the clock and the Foundation's hopes for the future.
Each SFMOMA Artcast brings you illuminating audio and video interviews with artists, curators, and visitors as they respond to the works on view and in the museum's collection.
This Artcast episode is part of our The Clock Story Board, a digital hub for texts, dialogue, multimedia, and a constellation of outside links offering windows onto the worlds of SFMOMA artists and artworks.
