Con Artist Collective is proud to host the NYC premieres of «The Empty Handed Painter» and «Reading Lips» for the latest installation of Sunday School, a series of artist-led meet-ups, workshops, and screenings at the Collective's Lower East Side gallery space. Laura Fay Lewis –– director of «The Empty Handed Painter» and star of «Reading Lips» –– will host these two unique premieres.

Based on true events, «The Empty Handed Painter» follows Tony Masaccio, the working-class son of an Italian gangster, from his mentorship under New York legends like Pollock, Rothko, and de Kooning in the 1970s to his discovery of his rare talent for art forgery. The film chronicles Masaccio's dark journey into the world of contemporary art fraud, as he flies closer to the sun selling impeccable forgeries of million-dollar masterpieces, all while on the run from lawyers, gallery owners, and drug dealers from his past. Featuring interviews with the real Masaccio, we see the troubled genius hurry to escape the cage he has built for himself, repent for his sins, and despereately seek out a second chance at life.

The first screening will be followed by a second premiere, «Reading Lips» directed by Lawrence Weiner and starring Laura Fay Lewis. A mashup of visual, text, and performative art featuring a high degree of collaboration from actors and directors, this unique film is not to be missed!

Every ticket to Sunday School comes with a one month membership to the Con Artist Collective, an arts community and workspace on the Lower East Side. Membership comes with weekly oppurtunities to hang art in our gallery and countless oppurtunities to network with New York's best emerging artists. For more information, check out our website
