Carnegie International Reveals Artists for 2022 Edition

Organizers of the Carnegie International today released the names of the artists who will be participating in the event’s fifty-eighth edition, to take place from September 24, 2022 to April 2, 2023, across various venues in Pittsburgh. Curated by Sohrab Mohebbi, the exhibition is titled “Is It Morning for You Yet?” The moniker represents a Mayan Kaqchikel variant on the typical “Good morning,” acknowledging the idea that one person’s morning may be another person’s night. Mohebbi credits artist Édgar Calel, who is creating work for the event, with introducing him to the phrase.

Like those of many other biennials and triennials in recent months, the roster of the Carnegie International includes numerous artists of color as well as a handful of deceased artists whose work either continues to gain or is finally getting recognition. The exhibition will focus dually on historical works and on contemporary works, with the latter category including work commissioned especially for the event. Mohebbi in a statement characterized a number of the participating artists as “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.” Among those presenting work at the fifty-eighth iteration are American multimedia artist Tishan Hsu, Turkish photographer Banu Cennetoğlu, Senegal–born interdisciplinary artist Monira Al Qadiri, and Philippine painter Pacita Abad (1946–2004).

The Carnegie International, which is held every four or five years, is the longest-running regular art show in the country, having been established in 1896. It is considered to reliably serve as a microcosm of the art world at a given moment, and is seen as a predictor of trends in art globally.
