The exhibit for Nomads and Networks: The Ancient Art and Culture of Kazakhstan, just opened at NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, and I was excited to see The New York Times piece by John Noble Wilford on the exhibition, which makes mention of our gorgeous catalogue, featured on the front page of today’s Science Times.
There was also a nice write-up on the exhibition in the Wall Street Journal last week.
Nomads and Networks is the first U.S. exhibition to offer a comprehensive overview of the nomadic culture of the peoples of eastern Kazakhstan’s Altai and Tianshan regions from around the eighth to first centuries bce. The catalogue is available for sale at the exhibit, which will run until June 3, 2012. Admission is free, and according to their website, a free guided tour is offered on Fridays at 6pm. Check it out if you’re in the neighborhood.
