Renée Green is a professor, an artist, filmmaker and writer. Through her films, installations, digital media, sound-related works and writings,  Green explores the temporality of public and private memory. She focuses on the nuanced changes that occur within our political and  transcultural spheres.

Green’s work is located both within the legacy of the most ambitious achievements of conceptual and post-minimalist art, and within a post-colonial critique of culture. It often takes the form of complex, multi-layered archive-like installations, which employ a vast array of sources, and point to a variety of issues that always involve the spectator as an active participant.
