The Art Lending Collection, a project of the Braddock Carnegie Library, makes artworks by regional and international artists available for checkout to all patrons in Allegheny County with a library card. Art facilitators moderate artist talks, assist patrons in selecting artworks, and engage the diverse public in conversation about contemporary art, presenting contemporary art as a field with multiple histories, perspectives and points of access. The discourse that the program provides acts to nourish overall vibrancy of the Pittsburgh arts community, while fostering the transformative and transgressive interaction of individuals, artists, artworks and the world. A physical catalogue of the works included in the ALC exists in the Braddock library and, during the Carnegie International, at the Carnegie Museum of Art.+ More details

Sadie Benning’s recent foray into abstract painting is represented here by the new work Locating Centers. Based on drawings the artist made on the iPhone, blown up in scale, hand-cut, and painted, the 40 paintings meditate on the relationships between analogue and digital processes. Benning described the series as being inspired by the International itself: “I was thinking about being in this international group show, being in Pittsburgh, and how there is no center to such a show—that there is a multiplicity of centers that interlock and overlap. So I was thinking of that in a conceptual way, about the body, and trying to find a middle, and also how that relates to narrative—a beginning, a middle, and an end, as well as a transitional connection between sequences.” These themes of inside and outside, and the body as a metaphor, are explored across four separate sequences that comprise one whole.+ More details
