Artist Talk: Sophie Calle

November 14, 2012
6p Reception, 6:30p Lecture
Steinberg Auditorium

French artist Sophie Calle, whose multimedia installation Take Care of Yourself (2007) is featured in The Progress of Love at The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, will give a lecture on her body of work.

The Progress of Love—presented within the contemplative architectural spaces designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando—explores the end of love's spectrum. This section of the exhibition, on view November 16, 2012, through April 20, 2013, also features works by the British-Nigerian artists Zina Saro-Wiwa and Yinka Shonibare (both also included in the Menil presentation) and the American-Jamaican-Nigerian artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi.

Take Care of Yourself was first shown at the 2007 Venice Biennale, documenting the responses of 107 women to a break-up letter the artist had received from her lover via e-mail. The Pulitzer exhibition marks the first presentation of the multimedia installation in a U.S. art institution.
