Series II: Exhibitions, 1932-2000. 8.23 Linear feet

Scope and Content

This series includes images related to various exhibitions that N-YHS held, mostly from the 1940s until the early 1990s. The images primarily include specific objects used in the exhibitions and installation views. There are some images of opening receptions and other events tied to the exhibition. The content is uneven across the series as some exhibitions are heavily represented with images, while others, especially in the earliest years, include fewer images, sometimes only signage. Most of the images are undated and unidentified and so are associated with particular exhibitions often only through their folder labeling, which has been retained as found.

The bulk of the images in the series are black and white photographic prints. Some of the files also include other formats, especially negatives and color slides, which are noted at the folder level. Some of the files also include press releases, captions, and other such textual matter. The series includes some non-photographic pictorial matter, including exhibition publicity posters.

Arrangement

The Exhibitions series is arranged chronologically and by title of the exhibition. References to months in the date range are to the exhibition opening. Some folders include material from more than one exhibition. A few folders of material related to exhibitions installed in venues other than the N-YHS building are at the end of the series, as are folders of oversize posters.
