Over 206,000 visitors attended the 57th Carnegie International contemporary art exhibit, officials said.

The exhibit opened Oct. 13 and closed Monday at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland.

It featured the work of 32 artists from around the world and represented 16 nations, the release said including Bahamas, Cherokee Nation, Navajo, Nonuya Nation, Palestine, Scotland, Senegal and Vietnam.

“Designed to be simultaneously accessible and complex, this was a highly crafted curatorial project,” says curator Ingrid Schaffner, who began work in summer 2015 in the release. “The 57th Carnegie International was catalyzed by three years of public programs—including 35 drawing sessions and a community-wide research of keyword ‘international.’ It culminated in an exhibition that will endure through its Guide and Dispatch publications and continue to ripple in affinities and connections seeded along the way.”

The International immediately impacts the museum’s art collection with substantial acquisitions of works by artists in the exhibition, according to a news release. The museum will continue to acquire art work through the summer

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
