ART AND CRAFT
Following Mark Landis, a prolific art forger who donates his work to museums instead of selling it, Art and Craft uncovers a curious story of obsession and understanding at the intersection of art, philanthropy and mental health. For over 30 years, Landis duped curators throughout the country with precise imitations of a vast range of works, from fifteenth century masterpieces to Picasso. What starts out as an art caper, rooted in questions of originality and authenticity, emerges as an unflinching exploration of life with mental illness and the universal need for community and purpose.
