Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn, NY
In 2010, Adam Lerner, the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, did something unheard of in the museum world: he mounted a large exhibition of paintings without first knowing whether they were real or fake. Painted in the Suprematist and Constructivist styles of early twentieth-century Russian avant-garde masters, the 181 canvases had been acquired by amateur collectors Ron and Roger Pollard from a mysterious seller in Germany. The man, who they met on eBay, claimed that the paintings had been found in an abandoned shipping container held in German customs since the 1980s.
This event—which celebrates the publication of From Russia with Doubt, (Princeton Architectural Press)—Lerner’s book on the making of the exhibition and the stakes involved with showing unauthenticated artworks also marks the opening of an exhibition co-organized by MCA Denver and Cabinet featuring a selection of paintings from the Pollards’ collection. The evening will include a discussion with Lerner about the value of inauthenticity and the benefits of not knowing within the modern cultural institution.
Exhibition dates: November 18–29, 2013 (closed Thanksgiving)
Gallery hours: Monday to Saturday, 12–6 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)

40 Years Later:
The Sydney Opera House
In 1957, Danish architect Jørn Utzon was the unlikely winner of an international competition to design the Sydney Opera House in Australia, which finally opened in 1973. Forty years later, the bold design is still considered an architectural masterpiece. October marks the 40th anniversary of the Opera House with festivities being held all over Australia to embrace the milestone.
At PAPress, we’re celebrating with the release of a new book on the architect. Jorn Utzon: Drawings and Buildings, by Michael Asgaard Andersen, will be released in December and dives deep into the highly diverse projects that the visionary architect took on, including the revered Opera House but also his lesser-known work. In Architect magazine, Thomas de Monchaux writes, “in its methodical synthesis of Utzon’s few built and many unbuilt works, in its application of underreported facts to well-worn legend, Andersen’s work is instantly indispensable.”
