“Connecting mathematics to the process of art to the voice of poetry”

Rhythm of Structure. Mathematics, Art and Poetic Reflection
September 11, 2009 - August 30, 2010
John Sims, who is teaching in the Department of Art and Public Policy at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in spring 2010, is the current Bowery Poetry Club-Artist in Residence. Sims has organized a series of nine (4-6 weeks) duets and group exhibitions/performances for the ArtWall (in association with Selby Gallery of Ringling College of Art and Design) at the Bowery Poetry Club.

Connecting mathematics to the process of art to the voice of poetry, in a call and response format, the shows explore the multi dimensional nature of structure from the geometric to conceptual to social to the metaphysical. The shows cover topics from love to the lotto, from sacred geometry to quilts, and tessellation to mathematical graffiti. To stimulate a dialogue around the use of structure and promote reflection via the poetic lens, poets have been invited to respond to the work forming the basis of a documentary film and catalogue.

Featured Artists included in the duets shows: Sol LeWitt/Adrian Piper, Karen Finley/John Sims, Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky)/Dread Scott, Paulus Gerdes/Ken Hiratsuka, and John Hiigli/Vandorn Hinnan
