TART Artist Talks at Whitney

Eric Doeringer, Julian Opie, from the Bootlegs project, 2007. Inkjet print with synthetic polymer on canvas, 10 x 8 in. Collection of the artist.

Friday, September 28 at 7 pm
Initial Public Offerings (I.P.O.): New Objects, New Audiences, Eric Doeringer

Artist Eric Doeringer mimics the stylistic elements of major contemporary artists from Dana Schutz to Matthew Barney to craft his own series of "bootlegs," near-dead ringers for the original artworks. Distinctly not forgeries, his works comment on long traditions of connoisseurship as they straddle the licit and illicit art markets that surround every transaction, between private collectors as well as public institutions.

With special guests Lisa Levy, Carrie McLaren, Filip Noterdaeme, and William Powhida.

Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6-9pm. Please register by visiting or the Museum Admissions Desk. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
