If you missed the 24-hour screening of ‘The Clock’ that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art held in May, here’s another chance to experience Christian Marclay’s award-winning, monumental installation piece.

LACMA will hold a second complete screening of ‘The Clock’ starting July 28 at 5 p.m. in the Bing Theatre. The screening will end the following day at the same time. Admission is free and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The museum is asking audiences to park in the Spaulding lot on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Spaulding Avenue.


‘The Clock’ is a 24-hour video installation that keeps real time using thousands of clips from movies and television shows. Among the clips are scenes from ‘Titanic,’ ‘High Noon’ and ‘The Natural,’ as well as snippets from TV’s ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘The Twilight Zone.’ The clips feature clocks, watches and other time-keeping devices that the artist has edited together to represent real time.

LACMA acquired ‘The Clock’ earlier this year and has been showing it in its galleries during museum hours only. In June, Marclay won the Gold Lion for best artist at the Venice Biennale.
