Charmed by Lizworks

Estimated Production Time4-5 weeks

About

With Charmed, Lizworks brings together seven of the most important women artists working today: Laurie Simmons, Shirin Neshat, Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Rachel Feinstein, Mickalene Thomas, and Wengechi Mutu. Each was asked to conceive a charm, a small talisman that considers both her personal history, and her vision as an artist. Simmons was inspired by the charm bracelet worn by her mother, an object of childhood fascination and later, the subject of creative inquiry. Mutu explored the duality of existing between two continents, two cultures, and two mindsets; Kruger’s straightforward coin meanwhile is evocative of iconic works like “Untitled” (I shop therefore I am), tackling art and commerce, desire and value, head on. The seven charms, which comprise a variety of materials and precious metals, and the gold bracelet that physically links them all together, are produced by the jewelry designer Ippolita Rostango, an artist in her own right. For Swig, Charmed was opportunity not only to create a contemporary heirloom, but also to bring these incredible women together in an intimate and powerful dialogue, and celebrate a rare example art world sorority and friendship. The medium is indeed the message. “The charm has been used by women to connect, share, and save memories from generation to generation,” Liz says. “It is a form of love among women. This bracelet elevates a piece of jewelry to a piece of art.”.

LIZWORKS

View Profile
Founded in 2014 by Liz Swig, LIZWORKS transforms the ordinary in to the truly extraordinary through collaborations with some of the world’s most prominent contemporary artists. These collaborations create one-of-a-kind works of art that form new mediums, shift perceptions, and bring a powerful new experience to audiences. Her most recent project was a revolutionary, wholly immersive oatmeal experience in collaboration with design luminaries Humberto and Fernando Campana. The project produced two limited edition bowls – one in cast bronze and the other in terracotta. Other notable LIZWORKS projects have included a porcelain water pitcher by Kara Walker, and dinnerware by Jeff Koons featuring images from his Banality series, both created with the fabled French brand Bernardaud. With the artists Vik Muniz, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Paola Pivi, LIZWORKS produced a series of signed, limited-edition eyewear that invited viewers to quite literally see the world through the artists’ eyes. A renowned patron, collector, and a formidable fundraiser, Liz Swig has served in leadership roles on the Boards of Directors of several prestigious cultural institutions, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Creative Time, and the American Friends of the Israel Museum. For the past few years, she has channeled her passion, her wit, her instinct for making connections and her inimitable ability to get things done into LIZWORKS.
