The French conceptual artist Sophie Calle (b. Paris 1953, lives and works in Malakoff, France) has exhibited extensively around the globe since the late 1970s. For almost four decades, she has produced a singular body of work merging image and text and revealing a narrative approach that eliminates the frontiers between intimate and public, fact and fiction, art and life. Highly autobiographical, her art and exploration embrace the universal and challenging concept of absence. Her projects are elaborated by creating a vast system of echoes and internal references, allowing us to read them today not as a simple accumulation of titles but as connected chapters of a total and absolute artwork.
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) is pleased to present Missing by Sophie Calle, a large-scale exhibition curated by Ars Citizen of the internationally acclaimed French artist. Featuring five of Calle’s most prominent projects, the exhibition is her most extensive to date in the United States.
