Replay Christian Marclay is possible thanks to Christian Marclay, the owners of the artworks and the Cité de la Musique, Paris.
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.
American artist Christian Marclay turned to video in the 1980s. His work has featured in two Venice Biennales and in major exhibitions at the Tate, Pompidou and Guggenheim Museums. As a musician and DJ, he has collaborated with groups as diverse as Sonic Youth and the Kronos Quartet."Music like you've never seen before and art like you've never heard before" Interview Magazine
