Dorothea Rockburne in Conversation with David Cohen
Introduced by Nina Samuel
Thursday, November 29
BGC, 38 West 86th Street
Benoît Mandelbrot, unusual among mathematicians of the twentieth century, harnessed the power of visual images to express his theories and to pursue new lines of thought. In this conversation artist Dorothea Rockburne will share memories of studying with mathematician Max Dehn at Black Mountain College, of meeting Mandelbrot, and discuss her recent work.
Exhibition curator Nina Samuel will discuss the related exhibition “The Islands of Benoît Mandelbrot: Fractals, Chaos, and the Materiality of Thinking,” on view in the BGC Focus Gallery through January 27, 2013.
David Cohen is editor and publisher of artcritical.com as well as founder and moderator of The Review Panel.
Dorothea Rockburne is a distinguished artist whose work has been inspired by her lifelong studies of Euclidean geometry, astronomy, and cosmology. Her most recent exhibition was held at the Parrish Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal.
Nina Samuel is curator of the exhibition “The Islands of Benoît Mandelbrot: Fractals, Chaos, and the Materiality of Thinking.”
