Sixfold Symmetry

Pattern in Art and Science

Exhibition Website

Sep 17 2016 - Mar 12 2017

Patterns, systems, and networks are all around us, and in this digital age we are increasingly aware of their influence on our lived experience. This exhibition explores some of the ways in which human beings create and manipulate patterns, and why we are intrinsically driven to do so. Patterns allow us to understand and predict complex natural and cultural phenomena, and to create artworks and other structures of surprising complexity and unity.

An interdisciplinary project, the show [....] will feature collaborations by a number of Skidmore faculty from across the disciplines to help investigate why the human brain discerns, designs, and desires pattern. Sixfold Symmetry: Pattern in Art and Science  will include contemporary and historical artworks, artifacts, and material culture from around the world.
