WAG Panel Discussion Debates Time, Cinema, Cultural Memory, and More

Winnipeg MB, October 18, 2013: The most acclaimed work of video-installation art in recent memory, Christian Marclay's The Clock, is screening at the Winnipeg Art Gallery until January 5. It has drawn an extensive amount of commentary since its release in 2010, raising questions about time, cinema, collage, archives, data, encyclopedic impulses, cultural memory, the parameters of the traditional gallery setting, and more.

At 7:30pm, Friday, November 22, the WAG will hold a panel discussion debating such questions. Moderated by Jonah Corne, Film Studies Program, University of Manitoba, panelists include artist Dave Dyment (Toronto), and Irene Bindi (Winnipeg) of WNDX: Festival of the Moving Image.

Cash bar and complimentary popcorn following talk. Visitors are also invited to attend all or part of the screening of The Clock that will run until 9am, Saturday, November 23.

Admission to the discussion is free (does not include admission to the Gallery or The Clock screening). Free for members.

The Clock is sponsored by Pattison Outdoor Advertising, the Winnipeg Free Press, and the U.S. Consulate, Winnipeg.
