Fake It 'til You Make It, "Faux Real"
Running parallel to the history of art is a long line of art forgeries. Exposed fakes have resulted in scandal, embarrassment, financial ruin, and now, a one-man show. The exhibit, called “Faux Real” …faux as in fake…opened on April first…another wink wink nudge nudge there…to showcase counterfeit works by the prolific forger Mark Landis. Matt Leininger was the first to spot a Landis forgery. He is co-curator of the show.
