Steven Probert Christian Marclay, Actions: Smak Squish Splsh, 2013
Celebrated for his landmark video, The Clock, Marclay turns to painting in this lively follow-up, which continues his career-long investigation into art's relationship to sound and music. Part AbEX, part Pop Art, the works on view feature cartoon onomatopoeias (plop!, plip!!, plaff!!) associated with stuff being thrown against something—like paint on canvas. Potfuls of pigment seemingly flung across the room serve as backgrounds for words silk-screened in comic-book fonts.
