Works by Park McArthur, Alex Da Corte, Huma Bhabha, and More Enter Carnegie Museum of Art Collection

Established in 1896 by Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art and Andrew Carnegie to acquire works by “the old masters of tomorrow,” the Carnegie International opened its fifty-seventh edition in October, five years after its last edition. To marks its closing yesterday, the museum announced its first round of acquisitions from America’s oldest international contemporary art survey, which was curated by Pittsburgh native Ingrid Schaffner and featured work by thirty-two artists and collectives from some two dozen countries.

Eric Crosby, the institution’s codirector and senior curator, told Artnews that by the end of the acquisition process, 70 percent of the artists from the 2018 exhibition will have work in the museum’s collection. A significant majority of those artists (80 percent) will be new additions to the Pittsburgh museum, including Huma Bhabha, Sarah Crowner, Alex Da Corte, Kevin Jerome Everson, Park McArthur, Jessi Reaves, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. The full list of the first round of acquisitions is as follows:
