From the homepage of 2013 Carnegie International:
The 2013 Carnegie International is an ambitious return for Carnegie Museum of Art's signature survey series, the preeminent exhibition of new international art in the United States. Curated by Daniel Baumann, Dan Byers, and Tina Kukielski, the 2013 Carnegie International is a conversation among four parts: a major exhibition of new international art, a playground, the museum's collection, and an engagement with the city of Pittsburg.
The 2013 Carnegie International brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale new commissions' presenting a broad spectrum of artworks, attitudes, and voices. It exposes powerful reinterpretations of the figure as a site of resistance, emancipation, and healing. It confronts everyday existence in all its beauty, imperfection, and confusion. It elucidates how abstraction can be employed as a tool to engage with the world. It makes a claim for the importance of place and reads history against the grain, paying homage to the multiplicities and dissonances that make our world richer and the future more interesting.
