Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce Things I’ve Heard, an exhibition of fifty works spanning the years 1994 to 2009 by artist and composer Christian Marclay. Photography has been an integral element of Marclay’s practice since his earliest years as an artist. With an eye keenly (and paradoxically) attuned to sound-related subject matter, his photographs function both as source material for his works in other media as well as sophisticated, subtle works of art on their own terms.
His travels have provided the artist with a rich array of sound-related subject matter; a bin of second-hand record albums in Michigan, a marching band outside a window in London, a painted ear on a brick wall in Montreal, a “Honk If You Love Silence” bumper sticker in Chicago, for example.
This is the first exhibition dedicated solely to his camera-related photography.
Christian Marclay is widely recognized as one of the most adventurous artists of his generation. “The Clock,” his 24-hour film comprised of thousands of time-related clips from the history of cinema, has attracted viewers around the globe, and will be on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from April 6th through June 2nd, 2013.
Marclay lives and works in New York and London. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of American Art, New York, Tate Modern, London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and many others. Things I’ve Heard is his third one-person exhibition at Fraenkel Gallery.
Expoziţia este deschisă până în 25 mai 2013 la Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco, 49 Geary Street, 4th Floor, CA 94108.
