Ted Efremoff: Time in Contest with Truth
New Media Alcove, Batchelor Gallery
Through June 19, 2011
Opening Reception
5:30-8 p.m., First Friday, Apr. 1, 2011

The NBMAA’s foray into New Media continues with an installation by artist Ted Efremoff on the theme of real versus fakes and forgeries. Efremoff’s installation is inspired by the mystery surrounding the NBMAA’s two versions of Figure in a Room by Frank Weston Benson. Which is real? Which is fake? Which is the original frame? Which is not? Often on view side by side, our visitors enjoy trying to crack the mystery themselves and discussing the merits of the “fake” artist. Efremoff will explore these themes with a site-specific installation, performances, and video production.
