Other Planes of There
Renée Green, artist, filmmaker, writer, and the director of the MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; in conversation with James Meyer, associate curator of modern art, National Gallery of Art. For nearly three decades, artist Renée Green has created an impressive body of work in which language is an essential element. Green is also a prolific writer and a major voice in the international art world. Other Planes of There: Selected Writings gathers for the first time a substantial collection of the work she wrote between 1981 and 2010. The book brings together essays, film scripts, reviews, and polemics as well as reflections on Green's own artistic practice and seminal artworks. In this program recorded on March 1, 2015, Renée Green and James Meyer discuss the thirty years of contemporary art, incisive critiques, and prescient observations showcased in Other Planes of There. Their conversation spans cinema, literature, sound, time-based media, and the relationship between art forms and other forms of knowledge.
