Flux Factory is proud to present Counterfeiting For Cash, an exhibition that confronts notions of authorship and authenticity, value, and celebrates ingenuity. Twelve artists have been commissioned to intervene in the systems we rely on to establish value, or investigate the rich history of unexpected counterfeits of ubiquitous and readily available objects. From February 27th to March 22nd, the Flux Factory gallery will function as a hub for these counterfeits, as they are inserted into the systems they will exploit: Craigslist, the dark web, antique shops, the art market, and major universities; or manipulate value we take for granted: branding, ubiquitous chachkies, eggs, and the value of a quarter. These artworks will go far beyond the gallery, and touch the lives of investors, collectors, shoppers and eaters. This exhibition is a window into a real world where nothing is what it seems, and the motives of the makers are dubious, confounding, and irreverent.More info See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
