New York—A group exhibition opened at Pace Gallery featuring artists from across its program whose works engage in diverse ways with fundamental properties of mathematics. Titled Principia Mathematica based on Sir Isaac Newton’s pivotal text of the same name published in 1667, the exhibition will be on view at 32 East 57th Street from February 8 through March 17, 2018. Showcasing artists such as Sol LeWitt and Keith Tyson whose works develop from systematic parameters and mathematical formulae to figures such as Robert Mangold and James Siena who work within a geometric visual vocabulary, Principia Mathematica examines the myriad ways 20th and 21st century artists dynamically engage with mathematics as a creative device.
