A French artist with more than five decades of activity, Sophie Calle is known for her provocative and deeply personal work that explores intimacy, identity, and the boundaries between private and public life. Calle’s art consists in using autobiographical elements recorded on various supports such as photography, text or film, confronting ourselves with our voyeuristic tendencies.

Overshare is the first retrospective in North America to recall Sophie Calle’s extensive artistic practice over the past five decades. Featuring photography, video, installations, and texts, the exhibition is driving us trough works that examine the human condition while blurring the lines between private and public life. Anticipating on social media and our commodified bond to para-social relationships, Calle’s work shows the complexities of identity as much as it reveals our own judgmental gaze.

Don’t miss her conversation with fellow artist Laurie Anderson on October 26th 2024 at 2pm and the performance based on her opus by WaxFactory, “TRACES”, that will take place on October 28th 2024 and many others related events.
