The latest news from the art world this month

There's a lot going on in the world of art this August! With fraudster antiquities and the return of art fairs, the art world is buzzing with drama and possibilities.

Fake Antiquities

A New York gallery owner and antiquities dealer, Mehrdad Sadigh, is facing charges of passing off fake artefacts as ancient treasures. Earlier this month, Sadigh was arrested for fabricating thousands of objects in what Manhattan’s District Attorney is referring to as a ‘fake antiquities mill’. Although Sadigh has pleaded not guilty, it is believed that he may be the biggest seller of counterfeit antiquities in the country based on his substantial financial gains over the years.

A Dedication to the children of Kamloops

Johnny Bandura is a self-taught artist from Qayqayt First Nation in British Columbia who grew up in Kamloops. In May, the remains of 215 indigenous children were discovered at the Kamloops Residential School. Bandura’s grandma attended the Kamloops Residential School in the 1930s and Bandura and his siblings attended programmes there also. He describes that when there “you could feel a very large amount of negative energy in the building – it was scary.” Thus, Bandura aimed to build a series of portraits dedicated to these children. The portraits depict what these children could have been: medicine women, nurses, hockey players. These paintings form a haunting and thought-provoking mural that seeks to commemorate and immortalise the tragic loss of 215 lives.
