Super Sunday: It's About Time

Sun, Mar 3, 2013 12 PM5 PM

Designed to engage all ages, Super Sundays take place once during each set of exhibitions at the Wex. This edition’s open house takes us on jaunt through time and history. See the impact of economic distress in More Modern American Photographs. Consider how past generations thought about the future with Josiah McElheny’s films and glass sculptures. Then lose yourself in Christian Marclay’s The Clock, a working timepiece comprised of thousands of film clips. The day also features free gallery admission and fun, hands-on activities for visitors of all ages.

This will be an opportunity to see Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video work The Clock, an international sensation making its Midwest debut here at the Wex; Towards a Light Club, a solo show by former residency artist Josiah McElheny, who explores modernist ideas of utopia through projected visual images and magnificently crafted sculptures combining glass and other materials; and More American Photographs, which brings together resonant photographs of America during the Great Depression and the Great Recession by artists including Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, William E. Jones, Catherine Opie, and Stephen Shore.
