Time is running out to see Christian Marclay’s The Clock at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (300 Memorial Blvd.).
To end the year, the WAG is holding a 24-hour screening of The Clock, starting Dec. 31 at 6 p.m. and running through to Jan. 1 at 6 p.m. The final show will be on Jan. 5, 2014.
"The Clock’s run at the WAG is coming to an end, and this is a perfect way to fit in a final viewing and greet 2014 with all of your favourite movie stars," Stephen Borys, WAG director and CEO, said in a release. "Visitors are free to come and go all night, making the WAG a great New Year’s Eve destination for a small or large part of your evening plans."
The release describes The Clock as a "cinematic tour-de-force," which required the efforts of six editors working for three years with 100,000 video clips. The film "unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage," the release states.
There will be a cash bar, snacks, and music at the event.
