Christian Marclay at the Whitney

The summer of interactive exhibitions (think Miranda July and Marina Abramovic) continues with Christian Marclay’s Festival at the
Whitney. The American born artist devotes himself to the combining and reinterpreting of the visual and musical arenas. The Whitney exhibition includes large scale chalkboards with music lines running the length of one gallery. Chalk distributed to visitors encourages them to add their own musical notes and words to create an ever evolving score which plays at random throughout the duration of the show. Musicians, including members of Sonic Youth, will also perform
Marclay’s score. Text and Photo Juliana Balestin
