Pittsburgh writer Ed Steck just announced that he will join Wade Guyton’s Friday night coatroom-lecture-drinks-performance to launch his newly published book The Garden: Synthetic Environment for Analysis and Simulation. He is, in turn, joined by Ryan Emmett and Micah Pacileo of White Reeves. They create sounds using past and present analog and digital technologies, somebody says.

The maelstrom is building.

Please join us for what may turn into a truly unforgettable night!

wade guyton coatroom 2013 carnegie international fin

On Friday, December 13th, 2013, American artist Wade Guyton, assisted by 2013 Carnegie International co-curator Daniel Baumann and supervised by a bartender from Pittsburgh’s Parkhurst Dining empire, will serve you drinks in the Carnegie Museum of Art’s coatroom. Or, if you prefer, Carnegie Museum of Art’s new exhibition space and coatroom. Please join us from 8–11 p.m. for this full-on, intimate, and relaxed soiree! It also includes a reading of texts written by American photographer Joel Sternfeld to accompany the photographs taken for his seminal project Sweet Earth: Experimental Utopias in America.

Among the people lending their voices to Sternfeld we welcome:

Deavron Dailey (artist and facilitator, Braddock Art Lending Collection)
Lauren Goshinski (Co-Founder/Director of VIA | Pittsburgh)
Sherrie Flick (writer)
Cathy Lewis Long (founding Executive Director of The Sprout Fund)
Angela Love (illustrator and teacher)
Jon Reyes (facilitator, Braddock Art Lending Collection)
John Schulman (owner, Caliban Book Shop)
Ed Steck (writer)
Josh Weinstein (filmmaker)

This warm-hearted, pre-Christmas evening also offers an introduction of Sternfeld’s work in the 2013 Carnegie International by co-curator Tina Kukielski, as well as a visit with Wade to the very exclusive Founders Room, where his second contribution to the exhibition is located. Music will be provided by artist and puppeteer Tom Sarver who graciously agreed to play some of his father’s collection of partly obscure singles.

$18 in advance/$20 at the door ($15 students). Call 412.622.3288 for tickets or register online, but don’t miss Friday the 13th!

Some say that the Carnegie Museum of Art was the first museum of modern and contemporary art in the U.S. It is true–as far as American institutions go–the Carnegie has been around the block. It opened in 1895 and a year later started an annual exhibition to bring work by the best and most talented artists to Pittsburgh. We inherited this model of an exhibition and hence thought it pertinent to reflect back on how it all went over these 117 years. Now, enter the archive: a visual history as told through installation photos and films (some seen for the first time), a few choice artworks, and a good amount of text. It opened over the weekend and will be up through the run of the 2013 Carnegie International.
