The Clock Opens at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on October 11. 
Christian  Marclay’s The Clock is a cinematic tour-de-force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. 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.  The Clock is presented as part of the WAG’s three-year partnership with the National Gallery of Canada.

WAG Director & CEO Stephen Borys: I saw The Clock in Los Angeles in 2011 and then in Ottawa in 2012—and it blew me away!

Proceeds support the advancement of all women's equality.

In 1929 Canada's highest court of appeal declared that the word "person" included both women and men, making it possible for women to serve in the Senate. It also paved the way for women's increased participation in public and political life. 
The case had been brought before the courts in 1927 by five Alberta women who became known as the "Famous Five" and became known as the Persons Case.
