Reinstalled Scaife Galleries of Modern and Contemporary Art open at the Carnegie Museum of Art
Installation view, 1961 Carnegie International.
PITTSBURGH.- The Carnegie Museum of Art's opened its reinstalled modern and contemorary collection galleries, and on Monday, June 10, The Playground Project welcomed visitors, as well as summer architecture campers. The International is comprised of a major exhibition of international art, a playground, the museum's collection, and an engagement with the city of Pittsburgh. The International opens in full on October 5.

The Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art
The Carnegie Museum of Art presents an ambitious reinstallation of its modern and contemporary art collection, lead by two of the 2013 Carnegie International curators, Dan Byers and Tina Kukielski. The curators have selected over 200 objects, which include a great number of works acquired through past Internationals. Altogether, 8 large galleries have been reinstalled. Rather than de-install the museum's collection galleries for the International, as in the past, this project brings the exhibition into conversation with past iterations, and contextualizes the museum's important collection both in terms of larger art movements, and how the museum and Pittsburgh engaged with artists around the world.

The Playground Project
"The most interesting place in the typical playground is the drinking fountain."
- Richard Dattner, Design for Play, 1969
The Playground Project presents some of the most outstanding and influential playgrounds from Europe, the United States, and Japan from the mid-to-late 20th century in order to prompt a reconsideration of our own time and the way we approach childhood, risk, public space, and education. The project also puts the concept of play into the foreground as an important way of thinking, one that has influenced the development of the 2013 Carnegie International. In addition, a Lozziwurm play sculpture, designed in 1972, has been installed in front of the museum's entrance, providing a public space for families to gather.

The Playground Project develops in two phases. Starting in June, this presentation of the most innovative playgrounds of the last century will inspire the museum’s summer art and architecture camps. In addition, children, teenagers, and families will be invited to respond and create with Carnegie Museum of Art’s drop-in ARTventures program. On October 5, The Playground Project will become part of the 2013 Carnegie International with the addition of two installations: a pioneering new project by Tezuka Architects and a film revolving around playgrounds by contemporary artists Ei Arakawa and Henning Bohl.

The Playground Project is guest curated by Gabriela Burkhalter.

2013 Carnegie International
The 2013 Carnegie International brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale commissions throughout the museum and beyond. Three major projects join what is, in essence, a conversation among artworks, the museum, and its visitors: an exchange of experiences and perspectives. A playground, designed in 1972, and installed outside the museum entrance, will be contextualized by The Playground Project, a richly illustrated exhibition of postwar playground architecture. An ambitious reinstallation of Carnegie Museum of Art's permanent collection of modern and contemporary art will explore the International's legacy and unique history. Finally, the 2013 Carnegie International amplifies its ongoing engagement with Pittsburgh's neighborhoods, inaugurated by the Lawrenceville Apartment Talks, which have been ongoing since 2011.
