The latest edition of one of the world’s premier art shows, the 2022 Carnegie International, continues here in Pittsburgh. This huge exhibition of works by artists from around the world has been a global tradition for more than a century. It is the second-oldest recurring show of its kind—the first International was staged in 1896, under the auspices of Andrew Carnegie himself, a year after the first Venice Biennale in Italy. The current International is the 58th, having evolved to a once-every-four-years schedule, and is staggering in scope. It includes pieces and performances by 79 individual artists or groups. There are contributors from Indonesia and from Braddock, the latter being Braddock native and photographer/activist LaToya Ruby Frazier. Breaking somewhat from the “contemporary” label, this year’s show also features works by renowned modern artists now deceased, such as Kate Millett and Claes Oldenburg. You can expect to see art in just about all media imaginable. The 58th Carnegie International bears the thematic title Is it morning for you yet? Learn the origin of this curious phrase on the show’s main web page and should definitely use the “Visit” tab up top to reserve timed entry tickets! Ends April 2.
