Share:


Tuesday August 23, 2022
6:00 PM

Location: Princeton Academy of Art, 138 Nassau Street, Floor 2, Princeton, NJ 08542

Description: Join Dr Abbey Ellis of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, and Princeton Academy of Art to discuss some of the most fascinating and ridiculous stories of artistic deception from history, including how a pair of fake underpants fooled a host of specialists at the British Museum. We will consider how to identify a fake, ponder the psychology of looking at forgeries, and question what it really means for a piece of art to be "real" or "fake anyway.

Hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served. Reserve your FREE ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/what-the-fake-tickets-392715441457
