An Evening with Sophie Calle

In Conversation

  • Lawrence Rinder is director and chief curator at BAMPFA.

Combining a key early work, a recent documentary, and an in-person discussion, this special evening provides an unparalleled introduction to Sophie Calle, one of the world’s leading contemporary artists. No Sex Last Night (a.k.a. Double Blind), made in collaboration with Greg Shephard, follows Calle and her lover Shephard on a road trip from New York to San Francisco. Variety called it “a rocky road movie that melds performance art with vestiges of existentialism to bittersweet and surprisingly entertaining effect.” Sophie Calle, Untitled is a lyrical portrait of Calle’s life and art, including the purchase of her future gravesite in Bolinas.

This presentation is part of Calle’s survey, Missing, on view June 29 through August 20 at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture in San Francisco and curated by Ars Citizen. Find more information on Missing and other related programs at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture and Ars Citizen.
