The Carnegie, Covington, KY
October 1, 2022–January 28, 2023
Curated by Matt Distel, Exhibitions Director for The Carnegie, Covington, KY and co-curators: Esther Callahan, Co-Artistic Director + Curator at Arts + Rec Uptown and Independent Curator, Minneapolis, MN; Daniel Fuller, Writer and Curator, Atlanta, GA; Cameron Granger, Artist and Filmmaker, Columbus, OH; and Tif Sigfrids, Owner and Director of Tif Sigfrids Gallery, Athens, GA and New York, NY
The Carnegie brings together five curators working inside and outside of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to select and develop projects based on linking artists across different geographies. For the past several exhibition seasons, The Carnegie has explored curatorial models that prioritize the process of connecting artists with a range of curatorial voices that can provide new contexts for their work. These Things Are Connected continues that effort by inviting Esther Callahan, Matt Distel, Daniel Fuller, Cameron Granger and Tif Sigfrids to introduce artists from outside of this region to pair with artists closer to the Cincinnati/Covington area. Rather than relying on an overarching theme, each project and pairing will observe connections and contrasting perspectives within each artist’s practice. These Things Are Connected will use photography and installation as a record of the moment in time that these objects shared a space.
