Masters of Tomorrow

How does contemporary art help us better understand the world? In this issue of Storyboard, which examines the artists and artworks featured in the 2018 Carnegie International—America’s oldest survey exhibition of contemporary art—our contributors approach this question from a variety of perspectives. Drawing on works by Kerry James Marshall, Tavares Strachan, Dayanita Singh, Postcommodity, and El Anatsui, these stories investigate the importance of artistic response in times of change.

This collection of stories also marks a new chapter for Storyboard. The award-winning journal will now be published online six times a year, with each issue centering on a specific theme. I hope you enjoy these stories. As always, thank you for reading.

About Storyboard

Storyboard is Carnegie Museum of Art’s online journal. It offers a forum for critical thinking and provokes conversations about art, ideas, and the intersections between. We believe that art helps us better understand our lives, and that artists challenge us to view and experience the world in radically different ways. The maxim of the journal is simple: Stories that matter, artfully told.
