Math and Art: A juried exhibition about the intersection of math and the arts.
Sep

to Nov 1

Math and Art: A juried exhibition about the intersection of math and the arts.

Math and Art: A juried exhibition about the intersection of math and the arts.

This is the fourth and final exhibit in a series of STEAM–previous juried shows explored the relationships of each discipline of the acronym (Science, Technology, Engineering, and now Math) with art.

Opening Reception on Sunday, Sept 22 from 4-6 pm

Statement of concept:

The Relationship of Mathematics and Art

Despite being thought of as originating from opposite hemispheres of the human brain, mathematics and art have long been intertwined and enjoy a strong creative relationship. Artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer famously used mathematics in order to help drive their creativity. Mathematical concepts such as the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio continue to serve as the backbone for works that artists create today. While mathematics has a defined set of rules and formulas, we as artists can push the envelope and bend the rules in order to explore the less restrictive outer realms of creativity. Artists can use mathematics as a defined structure in which to operate (e.g., Hamid Naderi Yeganeh) or a spring board from which to leap and play creatively (e.g., MC Escher). As the field of mathematics continues to advance exponentially and drive much of modern society and economics, the relationship between mathematics and art shows no sign of slowing down. As such, we invite artists to submit pieces that showcase how they incorporate math and mathematical concepts, as subjects or behind the scenes, into their work.

JUROR: Lucas Kelly Kelly’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States and throughout Europe. His work has been the subject of multiple solo and group exhibitions, most notably in the survey of abstract painting “The Painted World” at PS1 MoMA. In 2019 Kelly was named as the inaugural artist in residence at the Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics. A full professor in Visual Arts at Mercer County Community College, Kelly holds a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts. He is a member of the Tiger Strikes Asteroid network of artists, and his studio is in Philadelphia.

2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings

2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings

The sculpture “Clessidra” will be in show at the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. The goal of the annual Bridges Conference and Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) is to foster research, practice, and new interest in mathematical connections to art, music, architecture, education and culture. All too often, mathematics can seem disconnected from or even antithetical to these other topics. We believe that mathematics and art can inform and enrich each other, that there are great ideas waiting to be found in mathematical analysis and synthesis of art, and that artistic thinking and activities can enliven the mathematics classroom.

2018 JMM Art Exhibition - San Diego, CA

2018 is the 15th consecutive year that an exhibition of mathematical art has been held in conjunction with the Joint Mathematics Meetings. All of the exhibitions are chronicled online at the Bridges Conference website (http://www.bridgesmathart.org). Robert Fathauer was the curator of the exhibition, and the exhibition website was prepared by Nathan Selikoff. The exhibition was juried by Robert Fathauer, Martin Levin, Vince Matsko, and Elizabeth Whiteley. The Mathematical Art Exhibition Awards for 2017, given to recognize works that demonstrate the beauty and elegance of mathematics expressed in a visual art form, were announced at last year’s meeting. “Fractal Monarchs,” by Doug Dunham and John Shier was awarded Best photograph, painting, or print; “Torus,” by Jiangmei Wu was awarded Best textile, sculpture, or other medium; and “AAABBB, two juxtapositions: Dots & Blossoms, Windmills & Pinwheels,” by Mary Klotz received Honorable Mention. This year’s winners will be selected at the meeting by a separate jury from the one that selected the artworks for the exhibition. Since this catalog was prepared in advance of the meeting, the winners are not identified here. The exhibition website referenced above will contain this information, though. This year’s exhibition includes the work of over 80 artists from around the world. In this catalog, the artists and their works are presented in alphabetical order, except for some small shifts to ensure that two artworks by the same artist are always presented on facing pages. We would like to thank the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America for providing exhibition space, furnishings, and logistical support. We would especially like to thank Christine Davis, Penny Peña and Annette Emerson at the American Mathematical Society for their efforts in connection with the exhibition and awards. We would also like to thank SIGMAA-ARTS for financial support toward the printing of this catalog. Finally, we would like to thank the artists, whose creative vision and effort continue to make these exhibitions a valuable addition to the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Robert Fathauer Nathan Selikof
