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.

About

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. Heidi Morstang was also commissioned to produce a film ‘Thinking Space’, which explores how mathematicians think.

The exhibition brings these new works together, alongside visual material from the mathematicians, with whom they worked.

On Friday 22 April at 18:30 there will be a special film screening and talk by Professor Stephen Huggett, Professor in Pure Mathematics and Heidi Morstang, Lecturer in Photography. Free admission, booking is advisable.
