Summary:
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. This monograph, designed to emphasize Glynn's interest in process, temporality, labor, and shifting notions of value, features a series of essays on the artist's practice as a whole, texts on each of her discrete projects as well as images from the artist's studio, 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.
