Featuring spectacular large scale projections and dramatic sound, Replay Christian Marclay is the first ever solo exhibition held in the Screen Gallery at ACMI.
Marclay's work explores the overlapping of realms of image and sound through video, film, sculpture, photography, installation, collage, music and DJ performances. His practice combines a sharp pop culture sensibility with the traditions of avant-garde artists including John Cage, Laurie Anderson and the Fluxus group.
Music like you've never seen before and art like you've never heard before.
