Renee Green: Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams

The term “time-based art” is ostensibly a well-known construct by this point, encompassing video, audio and performance work but not textiles or other objects. Yet Ren e Green, whose complex installation art has long troubled easy oppositions such as public/ private, center/margin, and history/ fiction, complicates the idea of time-based art as well, recycling the otherwise “static” elements in her vibrant multimedia environments from year to year, thus mobilizing a more expansive notion of the “time-based” to situate her practice in history. Conceived for Green’s 2010 exhibition at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, this volume appraises the intellectual complexity of Green’s ever-evolving art.
