Building an Exhibition: Africa and Byzantium at The Met, Andrea Myers Achi (The Metropolitan Museum of Art), Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, and Zoom, February 15, 2024, 6:30–7:30 pm
The NYU Institute of Fine Arts presents the next installation of the Seminar on Ancient Art and Archaeology: Building an Exhibition: Africa and Byzantium at The Met with Andrea Myers Achi (The Metropolitan Museum of Art).
Dr. Andrea Achi, curator of Africa & Byzantium at the Metropolitan Museum, will discuss creating this exhibition, which was highly praised by many including Peter Brown of the New York Review of Books and Holland Cotter of The New York Times. Starting at the museum almost a decade ago as an intern in The Medieval Department at The Met, Dr. Achi has expanded on her earlier exhibitions related to archaeology in Africa and the global medieval ages to explore connections between northern Africa and Byzantium over the centuries. Dr. Achi will end with a preview of her upcoming projects and her aspirations overall for Byzantium at The Met.
This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required.
