About the Exhibition

Running October 5, 2013March 16, 2014, the 2013 Carnegie International could only happen in Pittsburgh. A major exhibition of international contemporary art, a playground, the museum's collection, and an engagement with the city of Pittsburgh, the International is truly international in scope and unorthodox in approach. The exhibition will include 35 artists from 19 countries—some of the most striking, contradictory, and playful voices working today—and is deeply rooted in the museum that has hosted this exhibition since 1896.

Co-curators Daniel Baumann, Dan Byers, and Tina Kukielski recently announced the artists in the exhibition. They will continue to host public artist talks and related events at the museum's apartment space in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, and provide a window into their thoughts and planning process on the 2013 Carnegie International blog, Pinterest, Tumblr, and other social media.
