The Dispatch is the second of two publications accompanying the 2018 Carnegie International, 57th Edition. Intended as a missive that sends the exhibition out into the world, this slim scholarly volume stands as a document of the show, through photographs and a checklist of the exhibition and its programs. In addition, it reflects forward, by presenting a series of studies on the relevance of an international exhibition today. Local, national and global perspectives are surveyed here, as well as artists' thoughts on the role of recurring international exhibitions for their work. With contributions by Gabriella Beckhurst, Jennifer Burris, Emi Finkelstein, Rebecca Giordano, Larissa Harris, Talia Heiman, Elizabeth Hoover, Hitomi Iwasaki, Koyo Kouoh, Prem Krishnamurthy, Paula Kupfer, Ellen Larson, Katie Loney, Sophia Marisa Lucas, Ashley McNelis, Liz Park, Erin Peters, Ingrid Schaffner and Marina Tyquiengco, and an artist project by Leslie Hewitt.
