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 will be the final talk on Part 1 of "Art in Doubt." Part 2 will open at the end of March. 

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.
