Please join us for a talk by Maria Timina, curator of Russian and European Art, on the exhibition "Art in Doubt: A Critical Examination of the Thomas P. Whitney Collection, Part 1."
This is an exhibition about suspected fakes and possible forgeries, about works that cause us to doubt history, experts and art itself. With a focus on the Thomas P. Whitney Collection housed at the Mead Art Museum, Art in Doubt marks the first scholarly presentation of dubious works of the Russian and Soviet avant-garde in the United States. The first part of the two-part exhibition—with the second iteration opening in Spring 2024—features exclusively non-objective compositions that were highly sought-after by collectors and were also believed to be more easily forged.
