Organizers of Carnegie International today revealed the names of the artists who will participate in the fifty-eighth edition of the event, which will run from September 24, 2022 through April 2, 2023, at various Pittsburgh venues. Organized by Sohrab Mohebbi, the exhibition is entitled “Is It Morning for You Yet? The nickname represents a Maya Kaqchikel variant of the typical “Good morning”, acknowledging the idea that one person’s morning can be another person’s night. Mohebbi credits artist Edgar Calel, who creates works for the event, with introducing the expression.
Like those of many other biennials and triennials in recent months, Carnegie International’s list includes many artists of color as well as a handful of deceased artists whose work continues to win or is finally being recognized. The exhibition will emphasize both historical and contemporary works, with the latter category including works commissioned especially for the event. Mohebbi, in a statement, characterized a number of participating artists as “reminding us that not only do our stories of pain and longing bind us, but our stories of resistance and survival help us reimagine the world.” . Among those presenting work at the fifty-eighth edition are American multimedia artist Tishan Hsu, Turkish photographer Banu Cennetoğlu, Senegalese-born interdisciplinary artist Monira Al Qadiri, and Filipino painter Pacita Abad (1946–2004).
The Carnegie International, which takes place every four or five years, is the nation’s oldest regular art exhibition, having been established in 1896. It is considered to reliably serve as a microcosm of the art world. at any given time, and is considered a predictor of art trends around the world.
