Related Exhibition New Work

Thursday, February 22, 2007, 5:30 p.m.

Phyllis Wattis Theater

One of France's most notable multimedia artists, Blocher produces site-specific installations that explore concepts of otherness, authority, representation, memory, and the political responsibility of art. By interviewing strangers and compiling group portraits from the individual encounters, Blocher encourages different ways of viewing and understanding the world. She will discuss her ongoing video series Living Pictures as well as the new work commissioned by SFMOMA on view in the galleries.
