Liz Glynn

"A lot of the work I do involves developing a structure for engagement with a dense historical structure through hands-on interaction and embodiement. I operate between modes of architect (shifting physical scale so that a vast world becomes apprehesible and malleable), and scientist (setting up a set of limit conditions and allowing the experiment to unfold without intervening.)"

- Liz Glynn


Liz Glynn, born in Boston, MA in 1981, employs objects and actions to consider the ambition of empire, the pleasure of ruin, and the possibility of a new way forward. Her practice seeks to embody dynamic cycles of growth and decay by creating works which evidence process, encourage participation, and incite future action.

Her work has been exhibited across the United States at venues including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Machine Project, Acuna-Hansen Gallery, the REDCAT Lounge, John Connolly Presents (NYC), and most recently in The Generational: Younger than Jesus at the New Museum in New York City. Reviews of her work have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Art Lies, among others. She has attended residencies at O'Artoteca in Milan, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and Vermont Studio Center. She received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts, and her BA from Harvard College. Glynn's work is part of the public collections at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Getty Research Insitute, Los Angeles, and Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
