About Liz Glynn

Working in sculpture and performance, Los Angeles-based artist Liz Glynn’s work explores the significance bestowed on objects due to sentimental value or perceived historic importance. For Performa 11, she orchestrated a group of 10 performers to reenact Buckminster Fuller’s failed attempt to build a geodesic dome with a group of students in 1948. In a cycle of performances, [de]-lusions of Grandeur, the artist chose to readdress monumental sculptures installed at LACMA, recasting Auguste Rodin figures and recreating an Alexander Calder mobile in a work excerpting primary texts and interviews she collected in the museum’s archives around the time the piece was acquired for the collection. Glynn holds an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and a BA in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard University.
