As a part of Crossing the Line, an annual festival produced by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) that promotes innovations in artistic practices, The Lowell Hotel will be hosting Room, a site-specific installation by the artist Sophie Calle. Within the space of the hotel room, Calle will invite viewers to construct a biographical narrative for her by using her personal belongings. A photographer, director, writer, and conceptual artist, Calle shares her personal life throughout all her work in every medium. Work from her series was featured in Aperture issue 191.
