Robert Baines at the Museum of Arts and Design

A new exhibition of work by iconic jeweler Robert Baines will open at the Museum of Arts and Design on Oct. 16, 2018. The show,  Fake News and True Love: Fourteen Stories by Robert Baines, is a clever examination of jewelry as a document of popular cultural history. The artist’s fanciful pieces and accompanying “evidence” encourage belief in the fourteen stories he presents. Baines has fabricated alternate realities that span from B.C.E. to the present day and encompass an equally wide range of topics, including migration, conspiracy, forgery, celebrity, and politics. The artist will give a performative lecture in conjunction with the exhibition. Thurs. Oct. 18, 6:30 – 8 pm.
