Found in Translation Exhibition Catalogue

The Columbia Museum of Art organized a retrospective museum exhibition of Naifeh’s paintings and sculpture entitled “Found in Translation: The Art of Steven Naifeh.” Twenty-six large-scale works were on view in the CMA special exhibition galleries from May 18 to September 1, 2013.

With an early immersion in the Matrix-like world of Islamic art, combined with an equally deep understanding of modern Western abstraction acquired as a student at Princeton and Harvard, Naifeh “rediscovered” a new art: an art that combines timeless and contemporary, distant and familiar, severe and delightful, rigorous and surprising.
