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.
