This lecturer explores fakes and looting against the backdrop of his experience at the Getty Museum and the UCLA/Getty Conservation Program. It highlights the issues raised by the advocates for the encyclopedic museum and its aspiration to collect. The speaker touches on his work with Pre-Columbian gold work, the Getty Bronze, and the recent repatriation issues at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
