A new series encourages people to look at paintings slowly rather than wander around and take photos to post on social media

British museums want to get visitors to slow down and actually look at art. To achieve this, a new TV show called Fake! The Great Masterpiece Challenge is putting seven pieces of fake art in galleries across the country and giving visitors the chance to figure out the impostor.

The program will run until August 1st in galleries including the Guildhall Art Gallery in London, the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, Manchester Art Gallery, Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, National Museum Cardiff, and the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Wirral.
