The 2013 Carnegie International brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale commissions throughout the museum and beyond.
Three major projects join what is, in essence, a conversation among artworks, the museum, and its visitors: an exchange of experiences and perspectives. A playground, designed in 1972, and installed outside the museum entrance, will be contextualized by a richly illustrated exhibition of postwar playground architecture. An ambitious reinstallation of Carnegie Museum of Art's permanent collection of modern and contemporary art will explore the International's legacy and unique history. Finally, the 2013 Carnegie International amplifies its ongoing engagement with Pittsburgh's neighborhoods, inaugurated by the Lawrenceville Apartment Talks, which have been ongoing since 2011.
Press resources and accreditation information for the 2013 Carnegie International can be found on the exhibition website.
