The Correct Time (1989 - 2022)
July 16 - October 2, 2022
Design Museum of Chicago
72 E. Randolph Street
The Design Museum of Chicago's current exhibition, The Correct Time, expands upon an artwork I initiated in 1989 while attending The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
We are collecting 720 donated broken clocks, one for each minute in 12 hours, because even a broken clock is right twice a day.
There are alarm clocks, cuckoo clocks, wristwatches and clock radios. Mechanical clocks, battery-powered, winders and a grandfather clock, too. With each clock set to a different minute, once there are 720, we will always have the correct time!
And if we get 1,440, we'll have all the time in the world.
