Pittsburgh, PA—In January 2020, Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) launches Mirror with a Memory: Photography, Surveillance, and Artificial Intelligence,the third iteration of the Hillman Photography Initiative (HPI) committed to exploring new ideas about photography. The initiative will present an exhibition of work by Trevor Paglen, a scholarly publication, and an interdisciplinary convening that is free and open to the public.

How are images utilized to gather data on our daily activities? With the development and advancement of artificial intelligence (AI), there has been a radical change in the way that surveillance systems capture, categorize, and synthesize photographs. Mirror with a Memory explores the many ways artists probe the intersections of photography, surveillance, and AI—their past, present, and future—to underscore concerns about implicit bias, right to privacy, and police monitoring embedded in corporate, military, and law enforcement applications.

“Photography has been used to surveil and police humans since the second half of the 19th century,” says Dan Leers, curator of photography, who is organizing the initiative. “Today, the vast majority of pictures are made by one machine for another machine to analyze in order to gather data on our movements and actions and determine our likes and dislikes. While there are many useful functions of AI, it also has more nefarious implications.” Mirror with a Memory considers how artists contribute to this ongoing discourse and add essential nuance to debates about the value of AI in our lives.

Museum staff have collaborated with a Creative Team to help shape the theme and programmatic elements of the third iteration of HPI. The team, led by Leers, includes Simone Browne, Associate Professor of African and Diaspora Studies at University of Texas at Austin; Jimena Canales, a historian of science based in Boston; David Danks, L.L. Thurstone Professor of Philosophy and Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh; Trevor Paglen, an interdisciplinary artist based in Berlin and New York City; and Ben Wizner, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project in New York City.

Mirror with a Memory is comprised of three programs that offer many opportunities for audiences to contemplate art’s role in questioning photography’s function within AI and surveillance technologies. On the weekend of March 21, 2020, CMOA will host a convening consisting of screenings, performances, and conversations between artists, scholars, technologists, and creative thinkers. Each session will take photography and its relationship to AI and surveillance as the point of departure for discussions of important topics including drones and aerial surveillance, bias and AI, borders and migration, and advocacy and disruption, among others.

Opening July 25, 2020, CMOA will present an exhibition of work by Trevor Paglen that will be on view through January 10, 2021. The presentation will include a new site-specific commission as well as existing work that reveals how AI analyzes and labels photographs of people and places. These works will be placed in three areas within the museum, inviting visitors to encounter Paglen’s artistic perspective in different contexts.

“One of the things that I think artists can contribute to the conversation around AI is looking at the relationships between images and labels in terms of how training data is put together,” Paglen remarks. “Artists can question the assumptions that are built into the images that are feeding these systems, the ways in which those images are classified, and what those systems ultimately purport to represent.”

Set for release in December 2020, a new publication will take the form of an illustrated reader. It will contain new scholarship, original translations of historical texts, relevant case law, and commissioned artworks. Topics discussed in the book include the history and present state of biometric, aerial, and behavioral surveillance and how artists have used their work to expose and disrupt these systems.

Mirror with a Memory is organized by Dan Leers, curator of photography, with Taylor Fisch, project curatorial assistant.

Pittsburgh, PA—In 2020 Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) welcomes a dynamic range of exhibitions that explore the many ways artists respond to their social, cultural, and ecological contexts. This ambitious season presents visitors with opportunities to consider the ongoing and sometimes ambiguous role of the artist in some of the most crucial conversations of our time.

“Artists have always been vital contributors to debates in our public sphere,” says Eric Crosby, The Henry J. Heinz II Acting Director and Richard Armstrong Senior Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art. “Whether channeling political attitudes of the moment or creating space for conversation, artists contribute essential nuance and complexity to the issues that shape our present moment. How cultural institutions will embrace them and foster their work is a challenge for our century.”

CMOA’s upcoming calendar begins with the opening of a new dedicated space in the permanent collection galleries for the Charles “Teenie” Harris Archive, as well as a rotating gallery for photographs and works on paper. Read on to discover what lies in store for the museum’s visitors.

CMOA is thrilled to announce the creation of a dedicated gallery for the Teenie Harris Archive. This space will feature iconic examples of Harris’s photographs and host a number of educational programs and community events inspired by this world-renowned collection.

Harris—who was a photographer for The Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation’s most influential black newspapers—created an unparalleled chronicle of African American history and culture during the mid-twentieth century. As both a member and documentarian of the black community, Harris remains an iconic figure in Pittsburgh to this day. With this installation, the museum celebrates Harris’s legacy and looks forward to creating opportunities for creative collaboration with local partners.

The Teenie Harris Gallery is organized by Dominique Luster, archivist, and Charlene Foggie-Barnett, archive specialist, Teenie Harris Archive.

Counterpressures
Forum Gallery
February 21–July 26, 2020

The 83rd installation of CMOA’s Forum series presents a thematic group exhibition that addresses the present urgency of global warming. The title, taken from a quotation in Pittsburgh environmentalist Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring (1962), identifies the show’s specific focus on the fraught relationship between human impact and environmental response.

This exhibition features new and existing work by ten Pittsburgh-based artists who are acknowledging the transitory state of our environment, the ecological, economic, and public health consequences on the horizon, and how these conditions intersect with their own lived experiences. Through their selections of materials, the use of data and documentation, their surrealist imaginings, or references to urban development and disconnection from nature, these works grapple with the eclogical present and its uncertain future.

Counterpressures has been developed in partnership with the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, the oldes continuously-exhibiting visual arts organization in the country. Artists include Allison Blair, Paper Buck, Seth Clark, Tara Fay Coleman, Christine Holtz, Stephanie Martin, Travis Mitzel, Njaimeh Njie, Su Su, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

Counterpressures is organized by Hannah Turpin, curatorial assistant for modern and contemporary art and photography.

Major funding for the Forum series is generously provided by the Juliet Lea Hillman Simonds Foundation.

An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain
Heinz Galleries
March 14–July 26, 2020

Carnegie Museum of Art presents the first comprehensive survey of the work of photographer An-My Lê (American, born Vietnam, 1960). Featuring photographs from each of the artist’s major bodies of work, An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain creates connections across Lê’s career and provides unprecedented insight into her subtle, evocative images, which draw on traditions of landscape photography to explore the complexity of war and conflict.

Born in the midst of the Vietnam War, Lê vividly remembers the sights, sounds, and smells of growing up in a war zone. She and her family were evacuated by the US military in 1975. It would take another 20 years for Lê to return to her homeland, this time with a large-format camera in tow. Since then, she has spent nearly twenty-five years recording the impact of the military on people, the landscape, and cultural memory.

The exhibition features selections from each of Lê’s seven series, including works from her latest series, Silent General, on view for the first time.

An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain is organized by Dan Leers, curator of photography. Major support for this exhibitio is provided by Lannan Foundation, Philip and Edith Leonian Foundation, and The Martin G. McGuinn Art Exhibition Fund. Additional support is provided by The Fellows of Carnegie Museum of Art.

The Fabricated Landscape
Heinz Architectural Center
May 9–September 13, 2020

This exhibition presents work by ten architectural practices from around the world, each represented by three projects that range from single houses to projects that operate at the scale of the natural terrain and urban infrastructure. All of these projects exhibit a sensibility toward the larger world to which they belong and contribute.

Each of these practices looks anew at architecture’s need to communicate with and augment the public sphere. These architects approach urban intervention and landscape with an alertness to sociopolitical issues and a renewed appreciation of craft. Several of the projects are specific to postindustrial communities and the Global South. Many of the objects have not been exhibited previously in the United States.

The Fabricated Landscape features projects by Assemble (England), Frida Escobedo (Mexico), Go Hasegawa and Associates (Japan), Studio Anna Heringer (Germany), Studio Anne Holtrop (Bahrain), LCLA office (Colombia/Norway), MAIO (Spain), OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen (Belgium), SO–IL (USA), and UMWELT (Chile).

This exhibition is organized by Raymund Ryan, curator, Heinz Architectural Center.

Support for this exhibition was provided by the Drue Heinz Trust, which also provides generous support for the operations and other programs of the Heinz Architectural Center.

Lina Bo Bardi Draws
November 22, 2019–March 29, 2020
Heinz Architectural Center

Pittsburgh, PA—Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) is thrilled to present an exhibition exploring the drawing practice of famed 20th-century architect Lina Bo Bardi. Lina Bo Bardi Draws brings together a selection of nearly 100 drawings, ranging from Bo Bardi’s early life to the end of her career, from more than 6,000 drawings in her extensive archives in São Paulo.

Bo Bardi was a prolific and idiosyncratic designer. Born in Italy, she was educated in Rome and worked in the Milan studio of the Modernist architect Gio Ponti. Bo Bardi moved to Brazil in 1946, where her interest in local materials and practices enriched her Modernist approach to design. Her most notable projects include the Museu de Arte in São Paulo (MASP) and SESC Pompeia, a factory rehabilitated into a cultural center, also in São Paulo. Her creative work extended far beyond architecture, incorporating furniture and jewelry design, theatrical design, teaching, curating, and architectural criticism.

The exhibition invites visitors to explore the importance of drawing to this influential architect’s design process and built work. Completed in a variety of media—pencil, watercolor, gouache, felt pen, pen and ink—the drawings reveal Bo Bardi’s broad view of design and architecture as accessible to everyone, nurtured by her interest in nature and everyday life.

“Drawing, with its slow and intimate gestures, was her way of dwelling in the world,” writes curator Zeuler R. Lima, PhD, in his introduction to Lina Bo Bardi Drawings (Princeton University Press, 2019). “Drawing conveyed, at the tip of her hands, a representational purpose and also a somewhat magical realism spell.”

A version of this exhibition, also curated by Lima, appeared at the Fundacío Joan Miró in Barcelona as Lina Bo Bardi Drawing from February to May 2019.

Lina Bo Bardi Draws is curated by Zeuler R. Lima and brought to the museum by the Heinz Architectural Center.

A Delight for the Senses: The Still Life
November 2, 2019–March 15, 2020
Gallery One

Pittsburgh, PA—Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) is excited to present a new exhibition exploring the rich tradition of still life painting in A Delight for the Senses: The Still Life. Once considered the lowliest genre of painting, the still life has long been overshadowed in the history of art; in this exhibition, visitors will encounter examples from nearly 250 years of the tradition, from the 17th century of Dutch and Flemish painting to America’s Gilded Age.

On the surface, these picturesque arrangements are easy to appreciate for their aesthetic beauty and skillful rendering. A closer look at these sumptuous, calculated arrays of objects ranging from the mundane to the luxurious reveals moral undertones and allusions to the transience of life. The exhibition asks visitors to look closely and unearth meanings that resonate with them while considering the tradition of this once humble genre.

Special loans from the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Frick Pittsburgh, and severala local private collections will be featured, along with recent bequests from the late Drue Heinz that include the first Golden Age still life in the museum’s collection: Still Life with Lemons, ca. 1660, a painting by Jacob Fopsen van Es that makes its debut in this exhibition.

“We are particularly excited to show the van Es painting,” says Akemi May, assistant curator of Fine Arts. “It’s a marriage of perfectly balanced composition and remarkable technical skill that embody this high point in the still life genre. You almost want to reach out and pick up the lemon peel.”

The exhibition is accompanied by two public events. On November 16, the museum hosts a free event featuring still life photographer Charlee Brodsky in conversation with May; they will discuss the history of the genre and Brodsky’s own practice. This is followed by a $10 hands-on still life composition workshop led by Brodsky, wherein participants will learn how to use lighting and framing to create a still life of their own.

A Delight for the Senses: The Still Life is curated by Akemi May, assistant curator, Fine Arts, Carnegie Museum of Art.

An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain
March 14–July 26
Heinz Galleries

Pittsburgh, PA—Next year, Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) will present the first comprehensive survey of the work of photographer An-My Lê (American, born Vietnam, 1960). Featuring photographs from each of the artist’s major bodies of work, An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain will draw connections across Lê’s career and provide unprecedented insight into her subtle, evocative images that draw on a landscape tradition to explore the complexity of war and conflict.

Born in the midst of the Vietnam War, Lê vividly remembers the sights, sounds, and smells of growing up in a warzone. She and her family were eventually evacuated by the US military in 1975. It would take another 20 years for Lê to return to her homeland, this time with a large-format camera in tow.

“An-My Lê creates her photographs from the unique perspective of someone who has experinced civil war from multiple sides,” says Dan Leers, curator of photography at CMOA. “As a woman photographer of Vietnamese descent, Lê also brings a critical viewpoint to a field historically dominated by men. Through her lens, we are exposed to military training, maneuvers, and reenactments which, in turn, invite us to question our own relationship to, and involvement in, conflict and war.”

The exhibition presents selections from all seven of Lê’s major series. The first, Viêt-Nam (1994–1998), is a meditation on her homeland, twenty years after she was forced to flee. In Small Wars (1999–2002), Lê documents Vietnam War reenactors in North Carolina and Virginia, exploring the fantasy and mythology of armed combat. 29 Palms (2003–2004) depicts real soldiers experiencing a dramatized version of the Iraq War as they perform training exercises in California. In Events Ashore (2005–2014), Lê photographs life aboard U.S. Naval ships for the better part of 10 years. Two unpublished series, Sculpture and Trap Rock (1991 and 2006, respectively), examine the effects of human incursion on the landscape.

Finally, CMOA presents Lê’s newest series, Silent General (2015–ongoing), which grapples with the legacy of America’s Civil War. These photographs respond to the complexities of our current socio-political moment with its unsettling echoes of the Vietnam war. Taking inspiration from Walt Whitman’s autobiographical Specimen Days, the series probes the ways in which past conflicts influence and shape the present landscape.

While Lê is represented in many major museum collections, An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain will be the first ever survey of her work in an American museum. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue featuring many never-before-published images.

An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain is part of a broader effort by the museum to exhibit the work of diverse, talented photographers who have too often been overlooked,” says Eric Crosby, Henry J. Heinz II Acting Director and Richard Armstrong Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. “We are committed to creating a world-class program of photography here in Pittsburgh that will resonate globally.”
