Santagata Lecturer Dorothea Rockburne: "Materializing Mathematical Concepts into Visual Art"

April 20, 2015 | 7:30 PM
Visual Arts Center, Kresge Auditorium

When Dorothea Rockburne first began painting in the 1950s she never thought that her art would be viewed in an exhibition context, both because she was a woman, and because her mathematics-inspired pieces didn't fit neatly into Abstract Expressionism or subsequently Minimalism. She believed she would never be able to show her work. Her assumptions, of course, proved to be false. Rockburne found compelling ways to apply the creativity of mathematics to painting and not only exhibited, but did so widely.
