SOPHIE CALLE MISSING, A MULTI-VENUE EXHIBITION ACROSS FORT MASON CENTER FOR ARTS & CULTURE CAMPUS ON THE SAN FRANCISCO WATERFRONT, June 29 – August 20, 2017

Missing gathers for the first time in the United States and in significant conditions five of Sophie Calle’s major projects: Rachel Monique (2007-2014), Take Care of Yourself (2004-2007), True Stories (1988-...), The Last Image (2010), and Voir la mer (2011). While unveiling a narrative of intimate stories, both personal and collective, the corpus offers a thoughtful survey of Calle’s art since the 1980’s and includes her most iconic projects spanning the last decade.

The exhibition takes a comprehensive approach to Calle’s work and recurring exploration, reflecting on absence and its relationship with other themes: disappearance, rupture, abandonment, loss, the absence in the presence… Concepts that are both challenging and universal, affecting each of us. This is certainly why Sophie Calle’s work and character continue to fascinate, amaze, disturb and inspire.

Presented in a site-responsive journey across the historic and picturesque campus of Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, Missing intertwines the ideas of ‘mother’ and ‘sea’ (the homophones ‘mère’ and ‘mer’, respectively, in French), and invests a diversity of locations: the Chapel, the General's Residence, Gallery 308, and the Firehouse with its iconic views on the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

Sophie Calle’s works has been itinerant since their inception and elaborated by building up a vast system of echoes and internal references, allowing them to be read as connected chapters of a unified whole.
