On Friday, September 20 we gathered at Artists Image Resource (AIR) on the North Side to celebrate the impending arrival of the 2013 Carnegie International. It’s the 56th installment of the beloved contemporary art exhibition, and curators Dan, Daniel, and Tina were joined by artists of AIR’s Resident Artist’s Projects and members of literary and comic artist collective Cyberpunk Apocalypse. Throughout the night appetites were satisfied with delicious vittles from Franktuary, Dozen Bake Shop, and Brassero Grill, while DJ Mizerak of Standard Issue Citizen kept booties shakin’.
And last Friday night we joined Gallery Crawl revelers for a fun, game filled night at There Ultra Lounge in the Cultural District. With only 7 days until the official opening of the 2013 Carnegie International, we took to the streets to challenge brave folks with LINGO—a special game of seek-and-find where participants searched for a set of terms in the art labels at the various galleries. Those who took the challenge walked away with sweet International swag.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! You can keep up to date with the latest event info for the International on the exhibition website.
