Mills College Art Lecture Series: Sophie Calle

NOVEMBER 19, 2015
7:00 PM

Please join us for an evening with internationally acclaimed artist, Sophie Calle as she discusses her interdisciplinary art practice spanning over thirty years. Sophie Calle uses the mediums of photography, video, film, books, text, and performance to pursue her sociological and autobiographical investigations. Her work often incorporates elements of voyeurism, surveillance, and personal narrative to explore the nature of love, intimacy, violence and death. Many of her works juxtapose writing and photography to question the dichotomies of truth versus fiction and public versus private.
