In more than 25 years, From Chaos to Order is the first major museum exhibition in the United States to focus on Greek art during the Geometric period (c. 900–700 B.C.). It is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the aesthetics of Greek Geometric art and to demonstrate how stylistic principles in visual art during the Geometric period reflect a characteristically Greek idea of the beautiful (known as kallos). This pioneering exhibition includes 57 objects drawn from The Sol Rabin Collection, considered the most important Geometric Greek collection in private hands. The collection presents new evidence that re-examines the contributions and innovations of Geometric art and its enduring legacy throughout classical antiquity.
