"Christian Marclay: Telephones and Soundholes," a special exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St. Petersburg, wraps up its run April 29, 2016.
In Telephones, Marclay has spliced together telephone scenes from 130 Hollywood movies; In Sound Holes, Marclay created 21 photogravures– a process known for its delicate graphic tonalities– depicting entryphones, emphasizing their patterns and scratches from use. Marclay works between London and New York, and his exhibits have been featured at institutions including the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; the Venice Biennale; the Kunsthaus, Zurich; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
