Prospect New Orleans says
From November 10 through December 4, 2016, Prospect New Orleans will present the Southern Premiere of The Clock, a major cinematic work by artist Christian Marclay. Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, The Clock samples thousands of film excerpts from the history of cinema that indicate the passage of time—from clock towers to wristwatches to buzzing alarm clocks—that edited together unfold on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage.

Never before exhibited publicly in the South, The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. From the legendary to the obscure, The Clock incorporates scenes of car chases, board rooms, emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, high noon shootouts, detective dramas, and silent comedies.
