Tim Rietenbach again featured at Downtown gallery with 'Fake' exhibition

Artist Tim Rietenbach is messing with you. His 2016 show at the Angela Meleca Gallery was titled “Sold Out,” which, even in terms confined merely to art, has multiple interpretations. This weekend the gallery opens his “Fake,” which I assure you is happening.

“A dumb word, currently used as a cynical ploy to undermine facts,” Rietenbach says in his artist's statement. As if the work itself isn't statement enough.

The exhibition continues through Feb. 24.
