This installation by Haegue Yang is part of the reinstallation of the Carnegie’s permanent collection that was done as part of the exhibition. Really smart move on the part of the curators. It shows the incredible depth of the collection and what amazing things the International has done for the institution and the city.

Just had the pleasure of hearing Rokni and Ramin Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian talk about their work at Carnegie Museum of Art. Oh, and also partake of this artful presentation of snacks they generously shared with the group.
"A fisherman passes a shipwreck near the port of Greenville, Liberia. In the mid 1990s, a vessel arrived carrying an aid cargo of rice and fuel. The captain and crew left the ship when it developed a problem and was in danger of sinking. They returned the next day to find that the whole cargo had disappeared and the ship had been ravaged".
I’m sad to be leaving the IMA, but thrilled to announce my new project: THE ART ASSIGNMENT. It’s a video series produced by PBS Digital Studios that will focus on the creative process and the act of making, and I’ll be the curator and host of it.
While the videos will live on PBS and YouTube, we’ll be using tumblr a lot, too, and will encourage you to upload your executions of various art assignments here, so please follow The Art Assignment on tumblr.
I’m really looking forward to making this a great project, and to sharing it with you in a few short months.
