Renée Green’s transfixing installations epitomize the Information Age because they’re often built upon archival material, regardless of her chosen medium–film, text, photography, prints, sculptures, music, textiles, fabrics, and new media. Her prismatic art explores themes surrounding cultural and personal history and memory.
In 2009, the Musée cantonal des Beaux Arts in Lausanne, Switzerland, exhibited Ongoing Becoming, a retrospective of Green’s works, spanning from 1989 to 2009.
