Carnegie International Curator Webcast

Hi, this is John. I'm very, very sorry for disappearing on you and grateful that Susan has helped me revive the blog. The city really lacks a good art blog and naming the thing, Digging Pittsburgh Arts, placed a huge responsibility on us to try to cover the large, and widely dispersed art scene here.

Doug Fogle, will be available online tomorrow and in person to answer talk about the Carnegie International and some of the choices he made one of which was to try to create a dialog about the show online, which I appreciate

"In another of the firsts that have characterized the inventive 2008 Carnegie International, the curator of "Life on Mars" begins a three-part public encounter tomorrow with visitors to his show's Web site.
"On-line and On Stage: Douglas Fogle and Living on Mars" is a live Webcast lecture/discussion from 6 to 7 p.m. tomorrow at Carnegie Museum of Art. Fogle will respond to questions and comments submitted to the site ( as well as to those from the auditorium audience. The exhibition will be open until 9 p.m.
This is the time to talk about favorite or not-so-favorite works in the International. What is the artist trying to say? Why did Fogle choose particular works and/or artists? What materials were used in a particular piece? Whither contemporary art?"
