This month, VOIR LA MER—five video portraits by Sophie Calle, shot in Istanbul—will be on view nightly just before midnight on the electronic billboards above Times Square.

This presentation is part of the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) festival Crossing the Line, in conjunction with the FIAF retrospective Caroline Champetier: Shaping the Light. Champetier was Calle’s cinematographer for VOIR LA MER.

SOPHIE CALLE—MIDNIGHT MOMENT: VOIR LA MER, nightly, from 11:57 to midnight, through Tuesday, October 31.

TIMES SQUARE, Seventh Avenue and Broadway, between 42nd and 49th streets, New York City.
