Galerie Kacimi hosts new exhibition in Fez
Colombian arttist, Cristina Torres, has spread her wings, far beyond her homeland. As a graphic artist working in paints, drawing and printing, her career has been quite extraordinary.
After gaining a scholarship as artist-in-residenc at the Chateau de la Napoule near Cannes, Cristina then moved to the Cité Internationale des Arts Paris. The French experience opened other doors including being invited to the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy. Cristina has also exhibited in Miami, Panama, Tunis, London, and Monaco, where she won the Jury Prize at the International Competition of Contemporary Art in Monte Carlo.
Cristina Torres has lived in Morocco for three years and her exhibition in Fez is presented by The French Institute in Fez. Opening on Tuesday, November 9 it will run until December 9, at Galerie Kacimi.
