Date: May 04, 2010 - May 31, 2010

“Wandering the World City” showcases a selection of Jan Yoors’ (1922-1977) black and white photographs of New York. An eager explorer of the city, Yoors masterfully documented its changing urban landscape in the 1960s. This exhibition emerged as part of two courses in museum anthropology at Columbia University taught by Nan Rothschild, Erin Hasinoff, Matt Sanger, and Felipe Gaitan Ammann. It was collectively curated by Shaelyn Amaio, Dara Bramson, Mary Cochran, Madeline Diaz, Laura Nadelberg, Sara Polefka, Kate Reutershan and Gek Puay Teo. Tim Wintemberg, Director of Exhibition Design at the Newark Museum, served as design consultant.

Co-sponsored by the European Institute, Department of Anthropology, School for International and Public Affairs, and the Yoors Family Archive.
