"Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries"

Detroit Institute of Arts
November 21, 2010 - April 10, 2011

Now featured at the Detroit Institute of Arts, the exhibition Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries investigates the authentication and misidentification of art from around the world. Displaying the fakes and forgeries in a show of their own, the DIA presents the clues and methods used to discover the origins of a work of art. An interactive exhibit, it includes an investigation lab that emphasizes the relationship between science and art and invites viewers to make their own discoveries. The exhibition provides an inside view of the workings of a museum and a tantalizing look at the art mysteries that remain unsolved.
