Dial In: The Contemporaries Celebrate Christian Marclay

Please join us as we celebrate the exhibition of Christian Marclay’s Telephones (1995) and Sound Holes (2007) at the Museum of Fine Arts, and kick off another year of Contemporaries programming!

Marclay is a world-renowned artist, known for both his playful yet meticulous filmic appropriations and his ability to render sound material. Marclay has been likened to a DJ, and indeed he has performed regularly in that role. His use of sampling is a unique and compelling form of appropriation that mines popular culture – most famously films – allowing the artist to create new narratives that are at once familiar and strange.

We thank our lenders to this exhibition, Paula Cooper Gallery, New York and Graphicstudio, University of South Florida Collection, and our sponsor, DeLoach and Hofstra.
