Christian Marclay, who graduated from SIM in 1980, has received the top honor given out at the Venice Biennale. The 2011 Gold Lion award was presented to Marclay for his installation “The Clock.”
Marclay’s video installation has been called "an abundant, magnificent work" (The Financial Times) "relentless and compelling" (The Guardian) and "utterly transfixing" (The Huffington Post). “The Clock” will be on view at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston during the unveiling of the MFA’s Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art in September 2011.
Outgoing MassArt President Sloan referred to Marclay's work as "a testament to the interdisciplinary approach to art and design that is a hallmark of Massachusetts College of Art and Design."
