Columbus Museum of Art
The Columbus Museum of Art will present LA Woman: The Photographs of Kali, the first museum exhibition of the work of Kali, the recently discovered photographer from the 1960s. LA Woman, which will be on view from September 10, 2022, to March 12, 2023, features more than 50 vintage and contemporary prints by the artist.
“The Columbus Museum of Art is very proud to present the first museum exhibition of Kali’s work”, said Nannette V. Maciejunes, CMA Executive Director and CEO. “The discovery of a new artistic voice, particularly one that was overlooked during the artist’s own lifetime, is particularly exciting. Kali was not only a talented photographer; she also was an early practitioner of experimental and alternative photography with which we are so familiar today. Columbus also is pleased to be the first art museum to acquire works by the artist.”
The exhibition is organized by the Columbus Museum of Art in collaboration with the artist’s estate. The show is co-curated by Nannette Maciejunes, CMA Executive Director and CEO, Tyler Cann, CMA’s Pizzuti Family Curator of Contemporary Art and Acting Chief Curator, and photographer Len Prince. A national tour of the exhibition with Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California, follows the show in Columbus.
