The 57th Edition of Carnegie International Opens with El Anatsui’s New Installation

The Carnegie International, 2018 opens with El Anatsui’s new work “Three Angles” (2018) which adorns the facade of the Carnegie Museum of Art. The Ghanaian-born El Anatsui has draped one of his glorious tapestries – a rippling quilt of bottle caps, metal printing plates, and mirrors – across the long stone facade of the museum’s building, creating novel visual effects.


Curated by Ingrid Schaffner, this year’s Carnegie International is audience orientated with a goal of “Museum Joy” which, according to the curator, connotes the delight of looking at art with others.
