Artists and mathematicians have examined the intersection of their fields for centuries if not millennia, with math influencing art and art showing inspiration from math, as well as situations where it is not clear which came first. The Esther Klein Gallery will soon host an art exhibition featuring this overlap between math and art. MathThematic is part of DesignPhiladelphia, held October 8-16 this year, and will also run through November 20. On the evening of Wednesday, October 14, the gallery will hold an opening reception from 5-7:30pm. Following that, the gallery hours are 9-5, Monday through Saturday.
Over a dozen artists have work in this show: Justin Bean, Regina Ceribelli, William Cromar, Jessica Curtaz, Chris Eben, Robert Fathauer, Karen Freedman, S. Leser, Marco Mahler and Henry Segerman, Gabriele Meyer, Maximilian Morresi, Brittany Phillips, Bruce Pollock, Mike Tanis, Andrew Cameron Zahn.
Gaby Heit has curated this show. Heit also curated EKG’s Cellular/Molecular in 2013. The Gallery has featured connections between the arts, science, and technology since it opened in 1976. In addition to exhibitions, the Gallery features talks and educational programming.
