Artists & Projects

The Exhibition

The 2013 Carnegie International brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale commissions throughout the museum and beyond.

The Carnegie Museum of Art Collection

An ambitious reinstallation of Carnegie Museum of Art's modern and contemporary collection emphasizes the role of the International in past acquisitions, as well as the museum's core strengths.

The Playground Project

A richly illustrated history of postwar playground architecture and design, situated in the museum's Heinz Architectural Center, explores play and making as the foundation of creativity; the museum also began installation of a Swiss-designed Lozziwurm play structure by its entrance, to be completed in late April.

Engagement with the City of Pittsburgh

Through two years of artist talks at the International's apartment space, the CI13 blog, and other exhibition components to be located in other parts of the city, the International was developed in conversation with Pittsburgh. Carnegie Museum of Art will acquire objects from the exhibition for its collection.
