Renée Green (born 1959, Cleveland, OH) 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, among them MAK Center for Art + Architecture at the Schindler House, Museum of Contemporary Art and UCLA Hammer Museum (Los Angeles); Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, International Center of Photography and the New Museum (New York); Jeu de Paume and Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris); Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University (Cambridge, Mass.); Musée cantonal des Beaux Arts, Lausanne; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco); National Maritime Museum (London); and MACBA, Barcelona. Her work has also been present at the Whitney, Venice, Johannesburg, Kwangju, Berlin, Sevilla and Istanbul Biennials, as well as in Documenta 11 and Manifesta 7. Her most recent books include Pacing (2020, CCVA, FAM, Cambridge, Mass.), Other Planes of There: Selected Writings (2014, Duke University Press, Durham), and Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams (2010, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco). Green is a Professor at the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology, School of Architecture & Planning.
