*North American Premiere*

“Music like you’ve never seen before and art like you’ve never heard before”. – Interview Magazine (on Christian Marclay)

DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art is pleased to present the North American premiere of Christian Marclay’s Replay, a major exhibition gathering works in video by the internationally acclaimed artist. Replay features spectacular large-scale projections and dramatic sound.

Among the works presented in the exhibition are Gestures (1999), Crossfire (2007), Mixed Reviews (1999 – 2001) and the centerpiece of the exhibition Video Quartet (2002), a large, four-screen projection featuring hundreds of clips from old Hollywood films, with actors and musicians making sound or playing instruments. An elaborate audio-visual collage, Video Quartet is a visually stunning and aurally complex work which builds masterfully to a proper musical composition.

Christian Marclay explores the fusion of fine art and audio cultures, transforming sounds and music into visible, physical form, through performance, collage, sculpture, installation, photography and video. The outcome is a full sensory experience where the realms of image and sound are combined with a sharp pop-culture sensibility and the traditions of avant-garde artists such as John Cage, Laurie Anderson and the Fluxus group.

Replay was originally conceived by and presented at the Cité de la musique (Paris) in 2007 and curated by Emma Lavigne.
