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.”

Pittsburgh, PA (May 4, 2022) – Carnegie Museum of Art is pleased to welcome visitors back to Inside Out, the museum’s free outdoor summer event series that celebrates Pittsburgh’s rich cultural landscape with performances, activities, food, and drink on Thursday nights and Saturdays. Beginning Saturday, June 4, and running through Saturday, August 13, Inside Out will offer a robust calendar of activities and experiences with new and returning partners and special events.

For the second iteration of Inside Out, artist Rafael Domenech will transform the museum’s Sculpture Court into a site-specific pavilion commissioned for the upcoming 58th Carnegie International. Visitors will be able to enjoy performances, DJs, art activities, local food trucks, and beverages every Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.

Thursdays will celebrate Pittsburgh’s expansive nightlife scene, providing an after-work destination for friends to connect during the week. On Saturdays, visitors and families alike can enjoy special site-specific performances and art-making activities. Returning performers such as PearlArts and Hugo Cruz and Caminos will have a chance to expand on their performances from last summer, while Hill Dance Academy Theater and the Bill Henry Band will make their Inside Out premiere. On select days, visitors can create their own artworks in a series of workshops facilitated by Domenech. A selection of food trucks on-site will be Alberta’s Pizza, El Rincon Oaxaqueño, Caribbean Vybz, and Soul Biscuit, among others.

“Inside Out welcomes you back for a summer of free performances, art-making workshops, and dancing at Carnegie Museum of Art. Inside Out offer visitors the opportunity to experience art as a convener of communities and friendships, while enjoying a vast range of local artists and arts organizations throughout the region,” says Dana Bishop-Root, Carnegie Museum of Art’s Director of Education and Public Programs. “We’re particularly enthusiastic about artist Rafael Domenech’s commission for the upcoming 58th Carnegie International as part of this year’s Inside Out. The pavilion Domenech is creating in the museum’s Sculpture Court will be unveiled on opening day of Inside Out, June 4. Our partners, performers, and artists will respond to and layer on to his installation with their own artistic practices and expressions. We want our visitors to bask in the light of art and community at this year’s iteration of Inside Out, especially in the lead-up to the September opening of the 58th Carnegie International.”

Carnegie Museum of Art Announces 58th Carnegie International Opening Date and Curatorial Team

The 58th Carnegie International will run September 24, 2022 through April 2, 2023

Pittsburgh, PA (June 16, 2021) – Carnegie Museum of Art is pleased to announce that the 58th Carnegie International will open on September 24, 2022 and run through April 2, 2023. Sohrab Mohebbi, the Kathe and Jim Patrinos Curator of the 58th Carnegie International, has assembled a Pittsburgh-based curatorial team, an international curatorial council, and an advisory group to create the exhibition. The Carnegie International is North America’s longest-running survey of contemporary art and has been the museum’s signature exhibition since 1896.

The Pittsburgh-based curatorial team, which includes associate curator Ryan Inouye and curatorial assistant Talia Heiman, will contribute to exhibition research, artist selection, public programs, and publication projects for the Carnegie International. Working closely with Mohebbi, Inouye and Heiman will serve as instrumental thought partners and provide strategic guidance as well as liaise with artists, international collaborators, and local partners to bring this edition of the Carnegie International to life.

Drawing on a range of professional experiences and intellectual commitments, a four-person curatorial council will help shape and challenge expectations of an international exhibition in the United States. Members include Freya Chou, Renée Akitelek Mboya, Robert M. Ochshorn, and Pablo José Ramírez. The formation of the curatorial council acknowledges a commitment to polyphony by creating an ensemble of positions that reflects the international scope and intention of the exhibition. The council members will introduce artists’ practices and projects to the Carnegie International, maintain regular dialogue with the curatorial team, and contribute to the making of the exhibition, publication, and public programs. In addition, Mohebbi and Inouye have invited an advisory group to facilitate focused research around the world and provide guidance regarding specific regions. These advisors include Thiago de Paula Souza, Arlette Quỳnh-Anh Trần, and Renan Laru-an.

“I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to work on the Carnegie International with this dream team. We came together in a historical moment that we are still to process,” says Sohrab Mohebbi. “The pandemic has set in motion practices of solitude and solidarity; perhaps we can think of these practices as the way of the artist and the struggle of the activist. Never before have these two positions been more aligned on such a planetary scale. The artist’s primary material is the use of their time, while an activist shares their time with others and distributes it. In the making of this exhibition, our hope is to sync our clocks with both.”

Eric Crosby, the Henry J. Heinz II Director of Carnegie Museum of Art, adds: “At a time when borders remain closed and travel restrictions limit our work, the 58th Carnegie International team is catalyzing international curatorial research at a level that is unprecedented for this 125-year- old exhibition series. Mohebbi and his collaborators—dispersed around the globe—are working to realize an exhibition that will be expansive in its geopolitical scope as well as responsive to local concerns. Their research will have a lasting impact on the legacy of the Carnegie International and the future of our museum.”

Bank of America will be the Presenting Sponsor of the 58th Carnegie International.

58th Carnegie International Curatorial Team

Sohrab Mohebbi is the Kathe and Jim Patrinos Curator of the 58th Carnegie International.
