  1. Feb 18, 2021, 7:30 – 9 pm
Join us on Zoom


Join us at 7:30 pm EST for a conversation between artist Renée Green and art historian Gloria Sutton to celebrate the publication of Renée Green: Pacing (Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts / Free Agent Media, 2021).

Over the course of two years as artist-in-residence at the Carpenter Center, Green produced a series of site-specific interventions, exhibitions, and public programs that culminated in the exhibition Within Living Memory (Feb 1–Apr 15, 2018). Renée Green: Pacing is the book that grew out of this multiyear project.

Renée Green: Pacing is a meditation spurred by inhabiting an architectural icon—Le Corbusier's Carpenter Center—while exploring the historical and institutional legacies of modernism's other forms, including cinema, visual art, poetry, music, and literature. Included in the book are reflections on a sequence of exhibitions that preceded Pacing: Facing in Toronto; Tracing in Como, Italy; Placing in Berlin; Spacing in Lisbon; and Begin Again, Begin Again in Los Angeles. Green will be joined in conversation by Gloria Sutton, catalogue contributor and the Carpenter Center Scholar-in-Residence over the course of Green’s Pacing residency.

You can purchase a copy of Renée Green: Pacing through Distributed Art Publishers / D.A.P.

Please note this virtual event requires pre-registration. Please contact with any questions ahead of this event.


For each of its virtual conversations, the Carpenter Center will publish a limited-edition booklet with an edited transcript of the exchange, images, and biographical material. These booklets will be made available for free both as digital downloads and in hard copy upon request. In this time of online gathering, this publication series is meant to serve as a material record of Carpenter Center programming and an art historical resource for future scholars and artists.

Renée Green

Renée Green is an artist, writer, and filmmaker known for her highly layered and formally complex multimedia installations in which ideas, perception, and experience are examined from myriad perspectives. Via films, essays and writings, installations, digital media, architecture, sound-related works, film series, and events, her work engages with investigations into circuits of relation and exchange over time, the gaps and shifts in what survives in public and private memories, as well as what has been imagined and invented.

Gloria Sutton

Gloria Sutton is Associate Professor of Contemporary Art History and serves on the program for Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Northeastern University. Her scholarship examines the material history and theoretical frameworks of time-based art as it enters the circulatory networks of public life.  She is currently working on a monograph on Shigeko Kubota and a critique of immersive space entitled Pattern Recognition: Contemporary Art in the Age of Digitality
