About the 2013 Carnegie International
The Carnegie International it is the oldest exhibition of contemporary art in North America. The New York Times described the 2013 International as “a welcome shock to the system of one of the art world’s more entrenched rituals. This lean, seemingly modest, thought-out exhibition takes the big global survey of contemporary art off steroids.”
Daniel Baumann lives in Pittsburgh and Basel, Switzerland. Together with Dan Byers and Tina Kukielski, he is co-curator of the 2013 Carnegie International in Pittsburgh. Daniel is an art historian, curator, and critic; director of the Adolf Wölfli-Foundation, Museum of Fine Arts in Bern, Switzerland; co-founder of New Jerseyy, an exhibition space in Basel; and, since 2004, curator of an ongoing exhibition series in Tbilisi, Georgia.
