Christian Marclay (born 1955) explores the fusion of fine art and audio cultures, transforming sounds and music into a visible, physical form through performance, collage, sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Published in a 3-volume magazine format, this exhibition catalogue aims to capture the spontaneity of his process-oriented practice. Although the structure of the magazines is intentionally loose, there are some themes that each issue addresses: the first issue historically contextualizes Marclay’s work; the second addresses his early work and discusses the performances taking place at the Whitney; and the third looks at his later work and video scores.

As a whole, Christian Marclay: Festival is a thoughtful and creatively packaged document that captures how this artist’s compelling practice has evolved over time and continues to expand and develop.
