Charles Lutz

Charles Lutz is a contemporary conceptual artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His work deals with value structures and the transference of values. The artist is best known for works that explore the ideas of originality and authenticity within the world of contemporary art. His work Babel at the 2013 Armory Show—a tower constructed of 1500 replicas of forged Warhol Brillo Boxes that were then given freely to the public—caused controversy, as have his other projects that deal directly with concepts of originality in the visual arts. His work has been shown in a solo window installation at the New Museum and in group exhibitions at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and Sharon Arts Center in New Hampshire.
