At the Armory Show, Warhol-ish and FREE

March 6, 2013

The big freebies at today’s Armory Show VIP opening were large-scale Brillo boxes in homage to Andy Warhol.  Visitors were encouraged to take one box from Babel (Stockholm Type), a creation of artist Charles Lutz, interviewed in this Artinfo video, who was on hand to sign each one.

And people snarfed them up. One woman in deciding not to take more than one was overheard to say: “If I have to pick up my mother’s prescription, I won’t be able to carry more than one Brillo box.”
