Event description

Description

At a time when a single oil-on-canvas painting can fetch millions of dollars, experts estimate that as many asalf of the artworks on sale could be forgeries. With fakes and misattributions littering the market, the sale of high-end art can result in lawsuits and convictions. In this lecture we will discover some of the more notorious cases of fakes, examine the systems that have emerged in an attempt to weed out the bad apples and look at why authentication in the art world remains a contentious matter.

Speaker: Shawne MacIntyre

Note: Adapted from a class in the Liberal Arts and 55+ Program titled Hot or Not? The Global Art Market.

This free event is co-sponsored by the SFU Seniors Lifelong Learners Society.
