Architecture Lecture: Gregory Green

Event Type: Lecture
Facility: ROTC Auditorium (CWY)
Presented By: School of Arch. & Community Design
Description: 
Gregory Green is internationally recognized for his challenging work and the numerous controversies it has spawned in the USA and Europe. Since the mid-1980ís, Gregory has created artworks and
performances exploring systems of control and the evolution of individual and collective empowerment. Greenís work considers the use of violence, alternatives to violence, and the 
accessibility of information and technology as vehicles for social or political change. Referencing historical precedents and disturbingly anticipating various historical events, such as the tragedy of
9/11 and the Arab Spring, Greenís provocative works expand the parameters between art and activism, culture and social commentary. 

With over 30 one-person exhibitions and hundreds of group exhibitions Professor Green has played a significant role in the Contemporary Art discourse of the last 20 years. His work is included in major 
public and private collections, including among others, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Tate Gallery, London; the Saatchi Gallery, London; the Museum of Modern Art, New
York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Mori Museum in Tokyo; MAMCO, Geneva and most recently, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; and his work is represented by
numerous commercial galleries in Europe and the United States.
