Pittsburgh spotlights exciting contemporary art in 2013 Carnegie International

(Continued)

PITTSBURGH, Pa. —

The photo ensemble’s title gets its name from Ian Fleming’s choice of the moniker James Bond for his 007 character, taken from an ornithologist named James Bond credited for writing a book titled "Birds of the West Indies."

Another photographic installation eponymously titled "Homesteading" in a hallway just off the Scaife lobby by Zoe Strauss (Philadelphia) focuses on the residents of Homestead, once a major Carnegie Steel mill and site of the notorious 1892 steel workers strike. The photographic essay chronicles how the lives of the residents have been shaped by the mill and its closing in 1986.

With so much to see, media relations manager, Jonathan Gaugler said that visitors can easily spend a day taking in not only the 2013 International but also the museum’s permanent collection, much of it drawn from the past 55 Internationals.
