Described as "a live-variety-show of conceptual origin", Clifford Irving Show presents a one-night-only composite event dedicated to the launch of Phantom Rosebuds and reading of the autobiography by the author. As years pass we shall reconsider familiar questions about the value of authorship and value itself, along with faith in magic, along with fakes and trickery, integrity of identity, through the various lenses of our various international stage acts, including Gary Wilson ("You think you really know me"), Fia Backstrom, Ayreen Anastas, Robin Carlson, Rene Gabri, and Kevin Killian, among others. The show will include a lecture/performance, a live remix of Michel Legrand's "Orson's Theme" from the soundtrack to F for Fake, a lecture on hoax, and a Prince Cast live. Clifford Irving Show is conceived and produced by Raimundas Malasauskas as part of F for Park, a project in search of a parallel science of beats and concepts.

Raimundas Malasauskas is an independent curator who previously worked at the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius where he co-produced CAC TV a discussion forum simulcast on the Web. His practice varies from participation in various social events including carnivals, business meetings, counseling sessions, dinners, and rehearsals as well as investigations into eventology, tele-action and con-art. He is currently a Visiting Lecturer at the California College of the Arts and is working with the 2nd year Curatorial Practice students on their final exhibition.
