Thaddeus Mosley will participate in the 2018 edition of the Carnegie International.

Ingrid Schaffner, who moved from being senior curator at ICA to Curator of the 57th Carnegie International at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, has announced some of her picks for the Triennial exhibition. (Dates for the International are Oct. 12, 2018 through March 25, 2019.)

From the Artnews article, the partial list of names includes…”Joan Jonas, the video-art pioneer who is set to have a Tate Modern retrospective next year, will create a new piece with the Vietnamese collective Art Labor. Work by the young Kenyan photographer Mimi Cherono Ng’ok and the 92-year-old Pittsburgh-based sculptor Thaddeus Mosley will also be on view.”

Have you heard of Drip?

It’s from Kickstarter, and I guess the metaphor is a (continuing) drip of water, only refreshing and not annoying. It’s a new website for creatives to get sustaining support. Check it out!

Nice story about Kehinde Wiley, official portrait painter of the official Smithsonian portrait of President Obama, in a recent article.

The artist won’t way whether President Obama will be portrayed as a heroic figure on horseback à la some of his other portraits, which quote from Jacques-Louis David’s paintings of Napoleon.

From the article, Wiley says…“I’m excited about it: It’s going to be amazing,” he said. “It’s going to be, like, boom!” he added, spreading his arms in jubilation.
