2024—Renée Green at Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Annual Lecture Series

The third in our ten-year series of Annual Lectures takes place on September 27, 2024. This initiative invites artists, writers, and thinkers to raise questions and present research extending the creative legacies of the artists Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson. Over the course of a decade, we will partner with a new institution each year to host lectures in ten distinct locations, each significant to Holt and Smithson.

The third Annual Lecture takes place at Utah Museum of Fine Arts on Friday September 27, 2024 where the keynote speaker is artist Renée Green. Details follow in Spring.

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. 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.

Green’s exhibitions, videos and films have been seen throughout the world in museums and art institutions. In the last decade, her work has been featured in solo or group exhibitions at moCa Cleveland; Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich; KW Institute for Contemporary Art and daadgalerie, Berlin; Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.; MAK Center for Art + Architecture at the Schindler House, West Hollywood; the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the New Museum, all in New York. She is one of our invited artists for the Foundation’s ongoing The Island Project: Point of Departure
