Liz Flyntz is a curator and writer based in Brooklyn, NY. Focussed on media and systems-based art, she has organized exhibitions, screenings, and symposia around the US and in Germany.
Most recently, she curated an exhibition exploring the time capsule projects of seminal media art and architecture group Ant Farm and their contemporary successors, LST, at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. This exhibition, titled The Present is the Form of All Life: The Time Capsules of Ant Farm and LST, was the recipient of an NEA Art Works grant and is accompanied by a forthcoming publication, to be distributed by DAP.
In 2014 she first presented the exhibition SEND BLANK TAPE: Radical Software Magazine and Early Video Distribution Networks as an installation of early video at Pioneer Works. Since then, she has presented a variable program of these works at several locations, including Brooklyn’s Union Docs, Buffalo’s Squeaky Wheel, and Baltimore’s long-standing experimental venue Red Room.
In 2013 she organized an exhibition of public interventions in conjunction with Media Cities, an international media art, architecture, and urbanism conference hosted by the Architecture Department at SUNY Buffalo. In 2012 and 2013, she co-curated Time Mutations, a two-part international exhibition “exchange program” between the Bauhaus University Weimar and SUNY Buffalo. In 2007 she was the recipient of a Warhol Foundation Curatorial Initiative Grant for the exhibition Sloganeers, presented at DCAC. Between 2006 and 2008, she acted as the performance and music curator for Baltimore’s Current Gallery.
Her writings on technology and art, media art history, and interviews with contemporary media artists have been published by Afterimage, The Creators Project, and Intercourse. She has a BA from Antioch College, an MFA in Media Study from SUNY Buffalo, and studied Media Art and Culture at the Bauhaus University.
Liz also designs media spaces and user experiences as an independent information architect.
