Around the World in 60 Minutes

Curating, Exhibition

Around the World in 60 Minutes features work by notable New York artists and internationally renowned Magnum photographers. Archival images have been selected to examine New Yorkers’ evolving relation-ship with food over the past several decades as a part of GrowNYC’s New Green City initiative.

For a span of 50 years, Magnum photographers Elliott Erwitt, Christopher Anderson, Thomas Hoepker, Leonard Freed and Elliott Landy have ventured into the far reaches of the five boroughs, extract-ing ethnographic sketches of New Yorkers from a medley of backgrounds.

Artists Tunde Adebimpe and Michael Sturgeon have created short films for this exhibition.

Around the World in 60 Minutes, as the first chapter of an ongoing project, brings focus to New York City’s characteristic culinary traditions.
