The Carnegie Galleries to host reception for Open Source 1.2 on Nov. 30, 5-8 p.m.

On Friday, November 30, The Carnegie Galleries will host a reception for Open Source 1.2, the second installment of its 2018-19 gallery season, Open Source from 5–8 p.m.

A new exhibition model for The Carnegie, Open Source invites guest curators to engage with artists from the region to present objects and installations in a continuously evolving gallery environment. Many objects from Open Source 1.1 will remain in the galleries but move location, be dispersed into multiple locations, or be altered in some way according to the intent of the curators and artists.

“This process for exhibiting art in The Carnegie galleries opens up new opportunities for regional artists to meet and work with curators and other artists from this area and beyond.” Exhibitions Director Matt Distel continues, “Adding more curatorial voices helps artists find more avenues to create and exhibit their work.”

Curators for Open Source 1.2 include Jessica Caponigro, Matt Coors, in addition to Annie Dell’Aria, Sarabel Santos Negron, Linda Schwartz, C.M. Turner, and Cori Wolff, who curated Open Source 1.1.

During the reception, artists in attendance will participate in a walking tour of their works on view in which guests are invited to learn more about the artists’ process in conversation.

Special for Open Source 1.2, Cincinnati Art Academy instructor Matt Coors has engaged his students to create and install new works in response to artist books selected from the Collection of Linda and George Kurz.

The artist books they will respond to are created by Richard Artschwarger, Nikki de Saint Phalle, Kendell Geers, Jonathan Horowitz, Yoko Ono, Rob Pruitt, Tom Sachs + Van Neistat, David Shrigley, and Haim Steinbach.

Subsequent receptions will be hosted Friday, March 15, 2019 (Open Source 1.3), and Friday, May 31, 2019 (Open Source 1.4). The Carnegie’s Annual Art of Food event will return Friday, February 22, 2019.

All of the receptions, with the exception of the Art of Food, include light hors-d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. The exhibitions will be available for viewing all during regular gallery hours, Wednesday – Saturday, 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. all season long.
