Renée Green (born 1959, Cleveland, OH, USA; lives and works in Cambridge, MA).


“Comprised of a video in three parts with soundtracks in English and French, along with dozens of black-and-white photographs, Secret reflects on the artist’s experience inhabiting a semi-deserted apartment in Le Corbusier’s concrete housing block, Unité d’habitation, located in Firminy, France. Designed in 1952 as a utopian proposal for collective living, Green encountered the iconic housing complex as a “modern ruin” when she was invited to participate in the 1993 group exhibition “Project Unité.””–CCVA website
