Fake News and True Love: Fourteen Stories by Robert Baines

On view in MAD’s Tiffany & Co. Foundation Jewelry Gallery, Fake News and True Love: Fourteen Stories by Robert Baines is a cleverexamination of jewelry as a document of popular cultural history. The artist’s fanciful rings, parures, neckpieces, and bracelets and accompanying “evidence” encourage belief in the fourteen stories he presents, spanning from B.C.E. to the present day and encompassing a wide range of topics, including migration, conspiracy, forgery, celebrity, and politics. Through satire and humor, he cautions that linear narrative can be confused with myth, riddle, puzzle, and possible subversions of history. Is the story true or fake?
