Renée Green, artist, filmmaker, writer and Dean of Graduate programs at San Francisco Art Institute, visited Columbia on 2/26 for a screening of her film "Endless Dreams and Water Between" at 4:30pm in 612 Schermerhorn. A short reception was held at the conclusion of the film, from 5:30-6pm. Green delivered a public lecture, followed by a conversation with Eduardo Cadava (Princeton University).
Renée Green: Via films, essays and writings, installations, digital media, architecture, sound-related works, film series and events, Renée Green's 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. She also focuses on the effects of a changing transcultural sphere on what can now be made and thought.
