Introducing Carnegie Nexus

Something new is afoot at Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. Carnegie Nexus is an initiative that taps the amazing material and intellectual assets of the four Carnegie Museums as they collaborate with other big thinkers to present insightful, risk-taking programming on ideas that impact us all. The collaborative initiative reaches across the arts and sciences to design experiences that animate pressing issues of our time and instigate new ways to examine our world through live performance, the visual and literary arts, and thoughtful conversation.


About Strange Times

Strange Times: Earth in the Age of the Human is a 12-part event series featuring four live performances, five conversations, and three films from January 10 to April 20, 2017.

Writers, artists, and scientists will take audiences on an exploration of humankind’s far-reaching impact on the earth, which many scientists assert has resulted in a new geological era called the Anthropocene.

The Strange Times programming series was co-produced by Edith Doron, Senior Project Manager of Carnegie Nexus, and Ben Harrison, The Andy Warhol Museum’s Curator of Performing Arts & Public Programs.
