Fakes-Frauds-Forgeries: The Biggest Art Scandal of the 20th Century (Livestream— 2020-11-18 through  2020-11-18$29— LivestreamView Details

Wed., Nov. 18, 10-11:30 a.m. Provenance, the unbelievably true story about one of the greatest art scandals of the 20th century, is a page-turning thriller. The authors offer us a glimpse into the fake art market, criminal motive, and what it takes for Scotland Yard to put an end to the scandal. The novel raises a whole host of ethical questions: how does the art market function? What happens when the power of museums and curators is knowingly abused? How might a con-artist manipulate this fragile system to their advantage? Join Craig Hadley, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Dennos Museum Center for a fascinating lecture and discussion. Please obtain a copy of the book and complete the reading in advance: Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo, Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art (ISBN: 0143117408).
