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.
