“Reconciling Realism with Modernism”
Christian White, artist 
—–
—–
Christian will discuss the influences and ideas from Rome, Providence, and Tribeca that informed his career, including his family’s close ties to people like Fairfield Porter, Wolf Kahn, Paul Georges and Aldous Huxley. Having spent much of his childhood in the Met, the Frick, MoMA and the Whitney, he has come to believe that Modernism, Realism, and Abstraction have all become deeply intertwined in contemporary painting.
Christian White was born in Rome but grew up on Long Island. He attended Liceo Artistico in Rome and has a BFA in Painting from RISD. He has been represented by Salander-O’Reilly, Barbara Ingber and Gallery North, among others, and his work is in many public and private collections. Christian is also a sculptor; among his commissions is the “Iconic Wall” in the lobby of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University.

“Fakes, Forgeries, and Frauds”
Nancy Moses, author
—–
In her new book, Fakes, Forgeries, and Frauds, Nancy goes beyond the headlines, tweets, and blogs to explore the true nature of authenticity and why it’s so important today. She delves into the fraught issue of sorting out the real Jackson Pollock paintings from the thousands of fakes, and why so many bogus works, so-called zombie Pollocks, keep circulating long after they’ve been discredited.
Nancy Moses writes about cultural treasures and the provocative issues they raise. Her books include Lost in the Museum: Buried Treasures and the Stories They Tell and Stolen Smuggled Sold: On the Hunt for Cultural Treasures. A former director of the Atwater Kent, Philadelphia’s History Museum, Nancy has held senior positions at the National Endowment for the Humanities, University of Pennsylvania, and WQED-Pittsburgh public media. She is currently chair of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museums Commission.
