|2013 CARNEGIE INTERNATIONAL
THE PRESTIGIOUS EVENT IS BACK WITH EVEN MORE STUNNING MODERN ART
|The Carnegie International is the oldest North American exhibition of contemporary art from around the globe. It was
first organized at the behest of industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie on November 5, 1896 in Pittsburgh. Carnegie
established the International to educate and inspire the public as well as to promote international cooperation and
understanding. He intended the International to provide a periodic sample of contemporary art from which Pittsburgh's
Carnegie Museum of Art could enrich its permanent collection.
The work of thousands of artists has been exhibited in the Carnegie International, including that of Winslow Homer, James
Abbott McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt, Camille Pissarro, Auguste Rodin, Willem de Kooning, Henry Moore, Jackson Pollock,
RenÃ© Magritte, Joan MirÃ³, Alberto Giacometti, Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, and William Kentridge.
