Renée Green's two-year engagement as the Institution (Building) artist at the Carpenter Center launches with a public conversation between the artist and CCVA Scholar, Gloria Sutton. Given Green's prolific output during the last twenty-five years, the conversation aims at contextualizing signal moments within the artist’s seminal oeuvre.

Taking into account Green’s longstanding consideration of the historical and institutional legacies of Modernism, in Pacing, the title of her CCVA project, the artist will engage with and return to an ongoing series of questions and forms of relation, allowing during the invited period a variety of trajectories to emerge from myriad points of material, imaginings, and speculation.

Indicative of her continually expanding practice, Pacing in Cambridge encompasses and reflects upon the arc initiated earlier in 2016 by a series of Green's solo exhibitions: Spacing in Lisbon (Jan-Mar), Placingin Berlin (Jun- Sep), Tracing in Lake Como, Italy (Jul-Sep), and Facing in Toronto (Oct-Nov).

Pacing's launch is accompanied with an installation in the Level 0 Display Case: FAM Case, on view Oct 27.
