COLUMBUS, OH.- In its first partnership with the Pizzuti Collection, the Columbus Museum of Art presents an installation of work by acclaimed artist Ori Gersht. Ori Gersht: Still Life on view at CMA August 29, 2014 – January 4, 2015. Born in Israel and based in London, Gersht has created a body of photographic and video work that combines exquisite beauty with memories of violence and historical trauma. Recalling romantic landscapes and eighteenth-century still life paintings, the work is rich with art-historical allusions, but also suggests ongoing political conflicts. 

“I’m very excited that this inaugural partnership between Columbus Museum of Art and the Pizzuti Collection is such a meaningful collaboration,” said CMA Executive Director Nannette V. Maciejunes. “Ron has been part of our Museum family for years and has always been a huge supporter of the arts community in Columbus. It’s been incredible to watch the launch of the Pizzuti Collection and I’m looking forward to our ongoing partnership.”

“Ori Gersht’s work in photography and video combines exquisite beauty with violence and historical trauma,” said Tyler Cann, CMA’s Associate Curator Contemporary Art . “It is deeply emotional, poetic, and yet, somehow, unsentimental. That’s an astonishing feat, and we are delighted to present this complex and engaging work.”
 
Ori Gersht is presented in collaboration with the Pizzuti Collection, and draws primarily from its holdings of the artist’s work. Concurrent with this exhibition, the Pizzuti Collection is also showing a film series, Ori Gersht: Portraits. This exhibition features successive presentations of three forceful video portraits, each connecting moments of quiet contemplation with violent histories and anguished realties.
