About the Museum of Forgery
Antoinette LaFarge, founder and director
The Museum of Forgery is a virtual institute dedicated to promoting an appreciation of the aesthetics of forgery. The Museum's ongoing programs include:
- Excessioning: creating or commissioning works to be credited to the oeuvres of appropriate artists living and dead.
- Do-It-Yourself Forgeries: complete instructions for forging works from museum gallerys around the world.
- Box City: sponsoring a free burial ground for unwanted art and related research into the decomposition of art.
- Smothered Art: sponsoring unusual methods for disposing of art.
Projects showcasing some of the museum's key activities are linked at left. Most of these are based on the internet and were commissioned by the museum between 1992 and 1995. A selection of earlier museum commissions can be found on our 'projects' page. The museum welcomes commissions for forgeries in line with its stated interests and encourages suggestions for future projects.
