London – Tate Modern

Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video installation The Clock (2010) is on show at the south London gallery until January 20. The work is a montage of thousands of film and television clips that depict clocks or reference time compiled over several years. It is synchronised to local time but jumps between 100 years’ worth of thrillers, westerns and science fiction movies.  On November 3 and December 1, the gallery stays open overnight to allow a full screening of the day-long film.
