Opening Reception @ the Carnegie Museum of Art. This Thursday, June 16th from 5:30 – 9 pm.
The CMA exhibition will feature a multigenerational mix of artists working in a wide range of media, including film, video, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and publications. Carnegie Museum of Art’s presentation of the Biennial centers on the notion of labor, most overtly conjured by labored manifestations of craft and the industrial, meditations on the nature of making, and the social contexts of the totems, artifacts, products, and songs of industry. Rather than another examination of the post-industrial condition, this heterogeneous collection of artworks takes a step back to present objects and images in the context of their making, and the cultural, often urban surroundings that reverberate in the double meaning of “work” as action and outcome.
