Lectures: Sophie Calle: Ghosts

Thursday, October 24, 7:00 PM


Memory is an essential part of being human, coloring our thoughts and feelings about time, place, and relationships. How memory is filtered through personal experience is one of the ideas explored in Last Seen, this fall’s special exhibition of work by acclaimed French photographer Sophie Calle. Join us for a series of lectures entitled The Art of Memory, as we explore the complexities of remembering (and forgetting).

The sign-up sheet will become available at the Admissions desk at 6 pm. We will make every attempt to seat everyone but cannot guarantee a seat once we are at capacity. Seats will be assigned 5 minutes prior to the lecture time. These obstructed view seats will be free of charge.
