It is sound—and our culturally determined reactions to it—that forms the basis of Christian Marclay’s genre and media crossing art. He is fascinated by the translation of the audible into the visual, and the theme that informs all of his work is the space between what we hear and what we see.
This publication examines Christian Marclay’s diverse work from 1980 to the present, exploring it within the varied contexts—music, art history, and popular culture—in which it exists. Essayists include UCLA Hammer Museum chief curator and exhibition curator Russell Ferguson; University of California, Los Angeles professor of art history Miwon Kwon; professor of technocultural studies at University of California, Davis and a leading scholar of avant-garde music Douglas Kahn, and musician and sometime Marclay collaborator Alan Licht. This book is the definitive volume on one of today’s most influential artists.—the publisher
