A Screening and Book Signing Reception
The MIT List Visual Arts Center will host a screening and book signing reception to celebrate the publication of Renée Green’s latest book Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams. Conceived for Green’s 2010 exhibition at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams considers the intricacy of the artist’s working methods, particularly in relation to writing.
In conjunction with the program, Green’s feature film Endless Dreams and Water Between (2009) will be screened. The film’s four fictitious characters sustain an epistolary exchange in which their “planetary thought” is weaved with the physical locates they inhabit—visual and aural characters in themselves: the island of Manhattan, the island of Majorca (Spain), and the islands and peninsula that form the San Francisco Bay Area. The characters’ reflections and dreams enact what could be described as “an archipelagic mind,” linking worlds, time, and space.
This program is free and open to the general public.
