Christian Marclay: Video Quartet

October 28, 2017 – January 14, 2018

Christian Marclay: Video Quartet is a theater-sized video projection that presents a flow of film excerpts featuring people playing instruments, singing, or performing actions that generate noise, such as knocking on a door. Video Quartet’s four adjoining screens are synchronized so that these previously unconnected performances blend together. The artist spent over a year composing and editing more than 700 individual film clips to create this exhilarating new work of art and music.

This exhibition is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
