Marcos Lutyens is based in Los Angeles and many of has works relate to the engineering of altered states of consciousness through immersion in fictional narratives.
Exhibitions of infinite scale and nature have been installed in the minds of visitors. His investigations have included research with social groups such as the third-gender Muxhe, Raeilians, synaesthetes, border migrants, space engineers and mental architects to explore how unconscious mind-sets shift across cultures and backgrounds. Lutyens has developed projects that involve our external surroundings. Works include interactions with pedestrian flows, social media dialogue, air quality levels, animal and biological intercommunication.
Lutyens has exhibited internationally in numerous museums, galleries and biennials, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York (2017); The Armory, New York (2017); the Boghossian Foundation, Brussels (2017), the Palazzo Fortuny, Venice (2017), La Monnaie de Paris (2017), Palazzo Grassi, Venice The Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool (2016); 14th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul (2015); dOCUMENTA(13), Kassel (2012); the 54th and 57th Venice Biennial, Venice (2011 and 2017); the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles (2010); the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2014); the Royal Academy, London (2010); MoMA PS1, Queens (2014), amongst others
