Carnegie Museum of Art Announces Artists Participating in the 58th Carnegie International, titled Is it morning for you yet?

The exhibition features new and historical works by over 100 artists and collectives

Pittsburgh, PA (June 22, 2022) –Today, Carnegie Museum of Art officially announces artists and collectives that will participate in the upcoming 58th Carnegie International. The exhibition, titled Is it morning for you yet?, runs from September 24, 2022 to April 2, 2023, and unfolds along two conceptual overlapping currents: historical works from the collections of international institutions, estates, and artists, alongside new commissions and recent works by contemporary artists.

Organized by Sohrab Mohebbi, the Kathe and Jim Patrinos Curator of the 58th Carnegie International and associate curator Ryan Inouye with curatorial assistant Talia Heiman, the exhibition traces the geopolitical imprint of the United States since 1945 to situate the “international” within a local context. The exhibition borrows its title from a Mayan Kaqchikel expression, where instead of saying “Good morning” it is customary to ask, “Is it morning for you yet?” Inspired by a conversation with artist Édgar Calel, who will present a new commission for the show, Is it morning for you yet? acknowledges that human beings’ internal clocks and experiences are different: when it’s morning for some, it might still be night for others.

“The artists participating at the 58th Carnegie International,” says Mohebbi “many of whom are showing art in the United States for the first time, combines a practice of reconstitution, reminding us that not only do our histories of pain and longing bind us, but furthermore, our narratives of resistance and survival help us reimagine the world.”

Eric Crosby, the Henry J. Heinz II Director of Carnegie Museum of Art, adds: “Our list of artists contributing to the 58th Carnegie International reflects the expansiveness of the curatorial platform we are evolving at Carnegie Museum of Art. It exemplifies how the museum, as an inquisitive and responsive institution, welcomes collaborators from across the region, our broader nation, and the globe. We invite their perspectives to activate the museum as a site for civic and social engagement, connecting our experiences to a larger whole.”

Our collection of over 34,000 works emphasizes art, architecture, photography, and design from the 19th century to the present. In addition, the museum houses the archive of more than 70,000 images by Pittsburgh photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris, whose work comprises one of the most detailed and intimate records of Black life in America. Through its programming, exhibitions, and publications, Carnegie Museum of Art frequently explores the role of art and artists in confronting key social issues of our time, combining and juxtaposing local and global perspectives.
