Pau Atela’s (Re)Creations and MathStudio / On View: Sep 13 – Dec 9, 2018
What does it mean for the fields of art and math to intersect? This exhibition offers glimpses into the work of Pau Atela, a professor in the Department of Mathematics at Smith College, that show how bridges can indeed be built between these two worlds. MathStudio is Atela’s ongoing creative studio space at Smith, focusing on process and dialogue between mathematics and art, where his students actively engage in the design and fabrication of 3-dimensional models that deal directly with aspects of mathematics. This exhibition features examples from Atela’s MathStudio teaching practice as well as his own artworks.
The University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) is located on the lower of the UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center. Directions to the Fine Arts Center
