To celebrate the release of the Art and Craft feature documentary, Hyperallergic is offering two readers the chance to have their Instagram posts “knocked off” by notorious art forger Mark Landis.
For over 30 years Landis successfully donated forgeries to over 50 US museums, including copies of original works by such artists as Pablo Picasso, Paul Signac, and Antoine Watteau. Adopting various personas, most infamously a priest, a number of museums took Landis to be a benevolent, if eccentric benefactor. The film charts Landis’ techniques while also following Matthew Leininger, a registrar from the Cincinnati Museum who set his sights on exposing Landis and his forgeries.
Two Hyperallergic readers will be selected to have their very own Instagram posts painted by Landis.
To enter, simply tag your images @hyperallergic and use the hashtag #artandcraftfilm on your Instagram feed.
The first winner will be selected by Hyperallergic on Friday, September 19, and the second on Friday September 26.
Winners will be announced on Wednesday September 24 and Friday, October 3.
Follow Hyperallergic on Instagram (@hyperallergic) for images from our editorial team, contributors, and reporters on the ground.
Art and Craft will be released at selected theaters on Friday September 19.
