Spring 2018 Exhibitions and Programs

Renée Green: Within Living Memory
Feb 1–Apr 15, 2018
Levels 3 + 1 + 0
Reception: Thu, Feb 1, 6–8 pm

Within Living Memory 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. Conceived as a constellation, Within Living Memory brings together interconnected bodies of work produced by Green over the past decade that address conditions of residency and displacement, subjective experience, institutional memory, notions of progress, and the inevitability of decay, all the while rethinking how time is marked. Debuting a new film essay work, alongside videos, sound works, photographs, banners, and prints, Within Living Memory is the final installment of Renée Green: Pacing, the artist’s two-year residency at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.
