"Walker Evans"
2000-02-01 until 2000-05-14
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

This major retrospective of the work of American photographer Walker Evans (19031975) displays some 175 vintage prints from public and private collections throughout the United States and Canada, and draws on newly available material from the photographer's archive, which was acquired by the Metropolitan Museum in 1994. The photographs span the artist's long and productive career, focusing not only on the classic pictorial documents of America during the Depression, but also on little-known experimental images from the 1920s, photo-essays for Fortune magazine from the 1940s and 1950s, and SX-70 Polaroid color prints from the 1970s. The exhibition is accompanied by two publications: a monographic treatment of Evans's work; and an anthology of materials that makes available for the first time the artist's early short stories, important letters, and critical essays now housed in the Walker Evans Archive.

The exhibition is made possible by Prudential Securities. The conservation of the Walker Evans Archive has been made possible through the generous support of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation as part of the Save America's Treasures program. Additional conservation support has been provided by The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Henry Nias Foundation, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The exhibition catalogue is made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
