Objects and Actions
The first monograph on Liz Glynn offers a thematic journey through a decade of her sculptures, installations, and live performances.
From her first participatory performance building Rome in 24 hours—in cardboard—to Open House, her open-air Gilded Age ballroom—cast in concrete—in Central Park, Liz Glynn examines the past to shed light on present-day social and economic conditions through a diverse array of sculptures, structures, and actions. Emphasizing Glynn’s interest in process, temporality, labor, and shifting notions of value, this monograph features a series of essays on the artist's practice as a whole, texts on each of her discrete projects, and documentation of her performances. Together they give readers a comprehensive overview of an artist whose career has garnered enormous attention from audiences and critics alike.
