After being ‘off view’ for several months, the Menil Collection’s Renzo Piano building reopens on September 22 with entirely new gallery layouts and installations of artworks consisting exclusively of the permanent collection and promised gifts. Paul R. Davis addresses the collaborative curatorial and art historical process of working with the Menil’s permanent collection of nearly 17,000 objects, spanning the prehistoric to the present day, and generating new gallery displays for the arts of Africa, the Pacific Islands, the Americas, and ancient to early modern Europe.
