Essay by Jon Campbell

False Flag is a gallery that pursues projects that would otherwise remain unrealized.

False Flag occupied a shuttered foundry that engaged in legitimate fabrication for many years, but made headlines in 2014 when former owner Brian Ramnarine was convicted in federal court of forgery on an audacious scale. The name False Flag comes from the forged Jasper Johns Flag sculpture at the center of the scandal that finally brought down the enterprise.

The publication includes a text outlining Ramnarine’s rise and fall in the art world, how False Flag acquired the space, and color photographs of exhibitions and performances by the artists from the gallery's first year of programming (2016–17) in Long Island City, New York.
