'There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres': Conversations across Art and Mathematics.

Curated by Barry Phipps, Art Historian, University of Cambridge

The relationship between art and mathematics has a long, rich and complex history, with both artists and mathematicians drawing inspiration from one another to investigate new ideas.

In 2015, to mark their 150th anniversary, The London Mathematical Society selected artists, Mark Francis and George L–Legendre, to create new work drawing on mathematical ideas.

The exhibition brings these new works together, alongside visual material from the mathematicians, with whom they worked, including: Professor Sir Roger Penrose (University of Oxford), Dr Iain Moffatt (Royal Holloway) and Dr Dorothy Buck (Imperial College, London). In these collected works we begin to glimpse a shared conversation between the separate disciplines, and find a history, creativity and future common to both.
