‘Principia Mathematica’ at Pace Gallery
A super-stunning, must-see group show at Pace is live now! Stochastic visualizations, sublime paradoxes and cosmic chaos – whet your palate with this selection of mathematically-inspired work.
Pace is great for many things: its bleeding-edge, cooler than now curation; its slick, modernist Pop and fine art; and its outstanding group exhibits united by a common theme. Welcome to Principia Mathematica, an exhibition that will blow your mind mathematically and make you contemplate the beautiful things in nature.
Here the gallery provides a platform equivalent of an artistic tesseract, a four-dimensional analogue of a cube, or a hypercube, which eggheads argue, if entered toss you through multiple dimensions or tunnel you through infinite realms. Paint-slingers, sculptors and visual poets — names like Sherrie Levine, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Leo Villareal, etc. — give us fractal shapes, tectonic plains, non-Euclidian virtuosity, primal blooms and more.
Dan Flavin, Alfred Jensen and Keith Tyson provide undiscovered dimensions and domains of rich, textural depth. Here you witness awesome interweaving and untwining of form, temporal shifts, optical illusions, and the medium of twisted space-time. The works engage in multiple ways with fundamental properties of mathematics that are empirical, mystical, commanding and mesmerizing.
Based on Isaac Newton’s epic, next level masterpiece published way back in 1667 — Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica — the exhibition is a math-intense ecstasy machine. Go to 32 East 57th Street before March 17, 2018. It’s a mind-expanding, ebullient experience. Thank you, Pace Gallery!
