E3: An Evening at the Carnegie Museum of Art
January 24 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM$40.00
Join us for a private tour of the Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 with curator Ingrid Schaffer. Presenting work by 32 artists and artist collectives, the Carnegie International invites visitors to explore what it means to be “international” at this moment in time and to experience museum joy. The pleasure of being with art and other people inspired the composition of this International—a series of encounters with contemporary art inside the world of Carnegie Museum of Art.
Light appetizers and wine will be provided. Dietary laws observed.
For questions, contact Rachel Lipkin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-992-5227. Please RVSP by Wednesday, January 16, 2019. Hope to see you there!
About the Carnegie International Exhibition
The Carnegie International is where the contemporary happens. Signal debuts, ambitious installations, live performances, site-specific works inside the museum and throughout the city make this exhibition an immersive experience of art today. Carnegie Museum of Art has presented the International since 1896—just one year after the first Venice Biennale. Inaugurated by museum founder Andrew Carnegie to inspire local audiences and artists, the exhibition showed Pittsburgh’s capacity to be a center of modern culture as well as industry. It also provided the freshly instituted museum with an annual trove of new art from which to grow its collection. Now occurring every four to five years, the Carnegie International is distinctly shaped by a curatorial vision.
E3 Chairs: Stacy Browdie Cohen, Rachel Firestone and Lauren Goldblum
