Closing symposium for "Rhythm of Structure" exhibit

Antioch College hosts closing symposium for 'Rhythm of Structure' exhibition

An exhibition exploring the intersections between mathematics and arts will come to an end with a closing symposium Nov. 4-6 at Antioch College. Rhythm of Structure: Mathematics, Art and Poetic Reflection was originally curated by John Sims ‘90 for the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City. It focuses on the visual language of mathematical ideas and process as a way to explore a spectrum of themes from geometric landscapes to the socio-political.

Miami Valley visual artists, poets, dancers, musicians, community members and students are invited to attend the closing symposium. Events begin Friday evening at 7 p.m. and continue throughout the weekend, including a gallery talk, artist talk, mad poetry workshop, film screening, panel discussion and community response. All events are free to the public and reservations are not needed.

Visiting New York poet Kristin Prevallet, along with Yvonne Seon, John Booth, Maria Booth, Bomani Moyenda, Ella Miller Toy, Bing Davis and Kevin Dean, will be featured in the closing symposium.

The community is invited to present poetic responses to the exhibition during the open mic section of the program at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5. The Community Response segment will be followed by an after-party reception at the Herndon Gallery.
