Artist, filmmaker and writer Renée Green (b. 1959) will give a lecture at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in the frame of the Wednesday Lecture series curated by Irmeli Kokko.
Renée Green‘s Endless Dreams and Water Between (2009) is a feature film with four fictitious characters sustaining an epistolary exchange in which their “planetary thought” is weaved with the physical locations they inhabit, visual and aural characters in themselves: the island of Manhattan, the island of Majorca, in Spain, and the islands and peninsula that form the San Francisco Bay Area. The characters reflections and dreams enact what could be described as “an archipelagic mind,” linking worlds, time, and space.
Renée Green’s most recent project has been the creation of the Media Bichos for MoMA Media Lounge, a permanent installation at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Ongoing Becomings, a survey exhibition of 20 years of her work was organized in 2009 by the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne; the book Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams, 2010, was published following her survey exhibition of the same title at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.
Green is currently Director and Associate Professor at the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology, School of Architecture and Planning
