Christian Marclay: 2822 Records (PS1), 1987–2009

Sep 5, 2009–Apr 25, 2010

MoMA PS1

This fall P.S.1 presents 2822 Records (PS1), 1987-2009, a site-specific floor-based installation of vinyl records by Christian Marclay. Consisting entirely of 12-inch records of every musical genre and style, Marclay’s installation highlights the experiential qualities of music and vinyl recording by inviting visitors to walk on the artwork. Marclay’s installation highlights some of the most primal notions around music, namely volume, space, and physicality. As an example of viewer and audience participation, it highlights a seminal aspect of the upcoming exhibition 100 Years (version #1, ps1, nov 2009), drafting a short history of actions, events, situations, happenings, and performances beginning with the Futurist Manifesto in 1909 until the present. Opening November 1.
