Concinnitas
Prints by Physicists and Mathematicians
Published by Parasol Press

January 8 - January 31, 2015
_i_Concinnitas__i_

Concinnitas, meaning a neat, skillful joining of several things, is an exhibition showcasing a portfolio of 10 aquatints by 10 notable physicists and mathematicians. The prints are composed of equations that, while aesthetically beautiful in form, ultimately convey the fact that mathematics is a universally understood language. Each print is accompanied with a letterpress text by the contributor. Curated by Daniel Rockmore, Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Dartmouth College, the equations are accompanied by statements that express the formulas associated with their work. Concinnitas is an exploration of artist Sol Lewitt’s belief that the idea is the most important aspect of an artwork, not the actual execution. “The idea becomes a machine that makes the art.”

Portfolio: Michael Atiyah, Enrico Bombieri, Simon K. Donaldson, Freeman Dyson, Murray Gell-Mann, Richard Karp, Peter Lax, David Mumford, Stephen Smale and Steven Weinberg

Published in 2014 by Parasol Press, Ltd., Portland, Oregon, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut and in association with Bernard Jacobson Gallery, London, England.
