The third and last installment in the series of brochures published in conjunction with Green’s Pacing, her two-year project at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, this brochure includes an essay by art historian and CCVA’s Scholar-in-Residence, Gloria Sutton: Traces of Experience: Renée Green’s Within Living Memory.
“Within Living Memory is an ars poetica by artist and filmmaker Renée Green. Her meditation was spurred by inhabiting a modernist 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, the exhibition brings together interconnected bodies of work produced 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.”
