My Carnegie International: Prospects And Thoughts

Ok, so here are some working notes and artist prospects for my Carnegie International which I see including at least 100 artists or projects spread throughout the city. No, I am not going to try and stuff the Carnegie with all this stuff, I am imagining using at least two other ofsite venues like Regina Miller, The Mattress Factory, The Center For The Arts or perhaps even The Westmoreland Museum. I also see at least 25 site specific sculptures, instalations, screenings or performances spread throughout the city/region. The list will tilt towards artists known for this kind of thing like David Byrne, Yoko Ono, Kim Jones, Julianne Swartz, Nina Katchadourian, Swoon, and Paper Rad.

This is just a working list and fails to include enough non American Artists. I liked Doug's inclusion of dead artists and older artists. Mark Lombardi, Eva Hesse,Gordon Matta Clark and Margaret Kilgallen are included. All four died far too young but left an ever growing mark on the art landscape.
