Artist Talk: Renée Green
CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art
2:30 pm – 5:00 pm
As part of exhibition The Conditions of Being Art: Pat Hearn Gallery and American Fine Arts, Co. (1983-2004), a series of public programs will extend the exhibition research, through screenings, talks and conversations.

On Saturday, December 8th at 2:30pm in the Hessel Museum of Art galleries, the artist, writer, and filmmaker Renée Green will speak to her close relationship with Pat Hearn during the years they worked together, as well as her contact and relationship with Colin de Land and American Fine Arts, Co. She will also reflect on her international travels with Hearn, which opened the path to Green’s ongoing work as an artist. After a stroll through the galleries, film and video excerpts will be shown.

The exhibition also includes Ana Mendieta’s Ñáñigo Burial (1976), an important work in her Silueta series, that was previously presented at Pat Hearn Gallery. Ñáñigo Burial consists of 47 black candles arranged in a silhouette of the artist’s body. As part of the recreation of Mendieta’s work in the Hessel Museum of Art exhibition, the candles will be lit on December 8th, during the museum’s open hours, between 11am to 5pm.
