Press release

Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) is pleased to present the first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. of Moroccan-born artist Latifa Echakhch. The newest exhibition in CMA's Currents series positions continuing themes presented in CMA's Schiller Collection within a current cultural context. Using vintage lithographic stones, Echakhch responds specifically to prints in the Schiller Collection. Presenting the stones along with icons of the American West, Echakhch provides a poetic and complex view of the eroding cultural divide.

"I'm thrilled to be able to present Latifa's work to Columbus," said Associate Curator of Contemporary Art Lisa Dent. "I've been an admirer of her work for years. She is an incredibly thoughtful and fearless artist whose work is respected around the world."

Exhibition 19 January - 22 April 2012. MAK, Stubenring 5 - 1010 Vienna (Austria). Tel.: +41 (0)1 711 36 248. Opening hours : Tue 10 am - 10 pm. Wed - Sun 10 am - 6 pm.
