Hannah Yohalem is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. She is currently completing her dissertation, “Movement and Arrest: Jasper Johns, 1954-1968.” The dissertation argues that a sustained engagement with restricted motion structured Johns’s early art, which not only illuminates his entire corpus, but also clarifies the historical relationship between bodily restriction and mobility and art in the United States in the 1950s and ‘60s. Her research has been supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, while her writing has appeared in Dance Research Journal, Performa Magazine, and a forthcoming edition of MoMA Highlights: 350 Works from the Museum of Modern Art. Hannah has run educational programming at the New Mexico Museum of Art and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico as well as interning in curatorial departments at MoMA and the National Gallery. She holds a BA in Art and Architecture from Harvard University.
