“Being a language, mathematics may be used not only to inform but also, among other things, to seduce.” — Benoit Mandelbrot

MathThematic features artists of all media in an exhibition demonstrating mathematic evidence in art, whether the works are directly inspired by math (geometry, fractals, patterns, etc.) or if the mathematical principles emerge naturally and reveal themselves from our human predisposition towards order.

The exhibition will take place at the Esther Klein Gallery at Philadelphia’s University City Science Center, 3600 Market Street, October 7–November 20, and will be part of the annual city-wide DesignPhiladelphia festival (October 8–16). An opening reception is scheduled for Wednesday, October 14, 5–7:30pm. Gallery hours are Monday–Saturday, 9am–5pm.

This is the second exhibition curated by Gaby Heit at the Science Center’s Esther Klein Gallery investigating natural design. The first one was Cellular/Molecular for the 2013 Philadelphia Science Festival.
