Christian Marclay (b. 1955, California) trained as a visual artist at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and at Cooper Union in New York while performing as a musician in the late 1970s. Over the last thirty years, Marclay has created an extensive body of work, including collages of music, sculpture, photography, and video. Using a wide array of mediums and materials, Marclay has explored the relationships between sight and sound and the convergence of the visual and the auditory. His work continues to navigate an exchange between these two areas, exploring questions about how sound is created, transformed, remembered, and interpreted. Marclay participates in a discussion of his recent work, including 2822 Records (P.S.1) (1987–2009), a site-specific, floor-based installation of vinyl records that is currently on view at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center.
