Byzantine Things in the World focuses on highlighting the Menil Collection's more than seventy Byzantine holdings ranging from 1700 BC to the late twentieth century. Byzantine thinkers saw objects as dynamic and changeable, fully capable of affecting the world, which is contrary to the contempory conception.
Organized by guest curator Glenn Peers, Professor of early Medieval and Byzantine Art at the University of Texas at Austin, with the support of Susan Sutton, curatorial assitant at the Menil Collection. The exhibition concentrates on the materials used and the sensory impressions created by the art.
