Carnegie bound


Libby and I are off to Pittsburgh tomorrow to attend the opening of the Carnegie International, the 54th installation of that big show. This year’s exhibit, like others I’ve seen over the years, should be great. If you’ve never gone, you might consider a trip. It’s worth it.

Anyway, I interviewed the show’s curator Laura Hoptman in September for an artnet piece that’s up today. Hoptman, a lively risk-taking curator, commissioned new work from 28 of the 38 artists in the show! She got some surprises along the way, she says. By the way, Hoptman, who previously was at MOMA, curated the great “Drawing Now” exhibit in 2002.
