Joan Semmel included in Crossroads: Carnegie Museum of Art’s Collection, 1945 to Now, a group exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA. 

The institution's press release follows: 

Crossroads mines our collection for stories that resonate today by highlighting the critical role of the artist in everyday life.

This complete reinstallation of our postwar and contemporary art galleries places the work of artists at the intersection of history and society. We’re also bringing dozens of rarely and never-before-shown works out of storage. Curator Eric Crosby finds pockets of depth, diversity, and eccentricities, organizing the galleries in a series of “chapters.”

Crossroads takes its title from Bruce Conner’s 1976 film, a hypnotic collage of atomic bomb blasts at Bikini Atoll.
