LIZ GLYNN creates sculptures, installations, and participatory performances using monumental architecture, cultural artifacts, and epic historical narratives to explore the potential for change in the present tense. Her work seeks to explore the position of the human within complex superstructures in the face of technological acceleration and an increasingly abstract economy. Recent solo projects include Open House, a project of the Public Art Fund sited in Central Park, NYC; The Myth of Singularity at LACMA, Los Angeles; and RANSOM ROOM at SculptureCenter, Long Island City, NY. Her work has also been presented at The New Museum, NYC; the Barbican Centre, London; MoCA, Los Angeles; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Petit Palais, Paris; and Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz, Austria. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, frieze, the New York Times, and Vanity Fair, among others. She is the recipient of a 2016 Creative Capital Award and the California Community Foundation Fellowship in 2010. Glynn earned her BA from Harvard College and her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. She is represented by Paula Cooper Gallery, New York. The Archaeology of Another Possible Future is on view at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, through September 2018.
