Carnegie International Opens in Pittsburgh

Started in 1896, the Carnegie International has been around longer than the Whitney Biennial and is nearly as old as the Venice Biennale—but being located in Pennsylvania means it doesn’t have the same global recognition as those other sweeping survey exhibitions.

“We probably have even more bridges than Venice, but Pittsburgh doesn’t color itself in that same golden light,” said curator Ingrid Schaffner, who was born in the city.
