Last week, Creative Capital announced its 26 awardees for 2016. Of the 2,500 proposals received, 46 projects were selected to receive up to $50,000 in direct funding and additional resources and advisory services. Among the artists and groups awarded is installation artist, sculptor and CalArts alumna Liz Glynn (Art-IM MFA 08).
Glynn uses found objects and materials to make work that deals with institutional critique, collecting practices, antiquity, monument-building and the concept of material value. A number of her installations and sculptures encourage public engagement and participation. Her latest installation, The Myth of Singularity, is currently on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Creative Capital seeks out bold, innovative and genre-stretching projects, providing grants and advisory services to artists to help them build sustainable careers.
