Import/Export Funk Office - Renee Green / “Renée Green’s transfixing installations epitomize the Information Age because they’re often built upon archival material, regardless of her chosen medium–film, text, photography, prints, sculptures, music, textiles, fabrics, and new media. Her prismatic art explores themes surrounding cultural and personal history and memory.” -- 30 Americans website
