Sophie Calle (Artist’s Talk)
@ The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium
230 S. Columbus Drive, Chicago, IL
Opening Wednesday, April 27th, from 6PM - 7:30PM
Since the late 1970s, Sophie Calle has made work that investigates provocative and often controversial methods for confronting her emotional and psychological life. She is well known for her sleuth-like explorations of human relationships and often weaves together photographic documentation, narrative texts, found imagery, and personal iconography. Calleʼs work has been shown in international venues, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Whitechapel Art Gallery, London; Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; and the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. Calle was the recipient of the 2010 Hasselblad Award for photography.
