Christian Marclay: Festival Boxed Set
Flexi-bound 3-Volume Set. 246 pp. Whitney Museum of American Art, 2011.
Published in a 3-volume magazine format, this exhibition catalogue aims to capture the spontaneity of Christian Marclay's 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 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 of the exhibition presented at the Whitney in 2010. It captures how this artist’s compelling practice has evolved over time and continues to expand and develop.

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. The Whitney's Collection includes over 190 works by Marclay.
