Pittsburgh—Curator Ingrid Schaffner announced the artists in Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 which runs October 13, 2018–March 25, 2019 at Carnegie Museum of Art. Established in 1896, the Carnegie International exhibitions have built a rich history of introducing audiences to contemporary art from around the world.
The 2018 Carnegie International will feature:
Art Labor with Joan Jonas
Mimi Cherono Ng’ok
Lenka Clayton and Jon Rubin
Alex Da Corte
Kevin Jerome Everson
Han Kang and IM Heung-soon
Kerry James Marshall
Josiah McElheny with John Corbett and Jim Dempsey
The Otolith Group
“Dig Where You Stand,” by independent exhibition maker Koyo Kouoh
With 32 artists and artist collectives, the exhibition invites visitors to explore what it means to be “international” at this moment in time, and to experience museum joy. The pleasure of being with art and other people is integral to the composition of this International—a series of encounters with contemporary art inside the world of the Carnegie Museum. Among the new and ambitious projects are: an unprecedented collaboration between novelist Han Kang and filmmaker IM Heung-soon; an exhibition-within-the-exhibition curated by Koyo Kouoh that draws from the museum’s collection; and an interpretation of rejected works from the history of the Carnegie International by Lenka Clayton and Jon Rubin. Other components of the International include a mapping of Pittsburgh through photography in the museum’s Teenie Harris Archive, one of the most detailed and intimate records of the black urban experience, and the Cinémathèque series of film screenings. The 57th edition also builds upon a long legacy of research and collecting by Carnegie Museum of Art.
