Conversation With Jane Birkin
The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, is thrilled to welcome Jane Birkin for a special conversation on Monday, January 29 at 7pm in FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street (betw. Madison & Park).
The actress and singer will discuss her iconic career and storied relationship with French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg in advance of her one-night-only performance of Birkin/Gainsbourg: The Symphonic at Carnegie Hall.
Birkin and Gainsbourg had a mythic love story that defined a generation, and together, they created some of the most beloved music of the 1970s. Birkin will discuss the rise of her music career from her infamous first hit Je t’aime moi non plus, to her solo career, and her recent work reinterpreting and performing Gainsbourg’s œuvre for a new generation.
The conversation will be moderated by Elia Einhorn, Pitchfork Radio & Talkhouse Podcast host, and producer.
Followed by a Q&A and book signing of Jane Birkin’s Attachments, written in collaboration with her friend, photographer Gabrielle Crawford.
