FREE EXHIBITION – ALL WELCOME!
The Landis Museum
20 April – 07 May 2018
Open daily 12 – 5pm
Devised by James N Hutchinson
The Landis Museum is a ‘museum of the encounter’ that contains works by seven international artists,
gathered because they share something in their mode of operation, their starting points, or the manner in
which they seek to be read.
The museum is based on the methodology of Mark Landis, a man who – in late 2010 – became the subject
of a number of international newspaper articles that characterised him as an art-world fraud, a forger
who’d been donating fake paintings and drawings to museums for nearly twenty-five years. But such a
characterisation is false, and it obscures what makes Landis’s work useful and interesting.
The exhibition consists of a number of objects, videos and actions that have been arranged on and around
a single display object, bringing then into physical and aesthetic contact with each other.
The Landis Museum is supported by Glasgow International and Culture Ireland.
