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.Read Less
Fine. 0300169000 Complete in slipcase. FESTIVAL ISSUES 1-3. Christian Marclay: Festival was a pioneering exhibition during which musicians performed Marclay's scores live, in the gallery, at least twice a day. The catalogue was conceived in this same improvisatory, spontaneous spirit, and is composed of three separate magazines that were issued during the run of the exhibition. The magazine format reflects the open, generous nature of the performances and allowed for a more immediate response to the evolution of the exhibition over time, as well as enabled documentation of the many performances that took place every day within the gallery. The publication includes critical writings on Marclay's work by Christoph Cox and Liz Kotz, among others; reflections from performers such as Elliott Sharp and Shelley Hirsch; reviews of the performances; and is beautifully illustrated with images of the exhibition, the performances, and the scores. 248 pages.
