Clocktower Productions is an art production institution working in the visual arts, performance, music, and radio. Founded in 1972 in Lower Manhattan by MoMA PS1 Founder Alanna Heiss, Clocktower is the oldest alternative art project in New York. For 40 years, the institution has produced seminal exhibitions and performances by some of the most important artists of our time. After leaving its historic Tribeca tower in December 2013, Clocktower immediately engaged in contracted program partnerships with six cultural institutions in three boroughs.

Clocktower produces multidisciplinary art projects all over the city through these creative collaborations with Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Knockdown Center in Queens, Playland Motel & Gallery in Far Rockaway, and Times Square Arts and Neuehouse in Manhattan. These spaces host Clocktower exhibitions, performances, residencies, radio, and administrative activities.

While Clocktower examines opportunities for a permanent long-term home, administrative offices are located in an office building on East 41st Street, with a satellite studio for full-time radio production and broadcast at Pioneer Works, in Red Hook.
