Antiochian and conceptual artist John Sims '90, organized a year long group of nine mathematical art exhibitions, at the Bowery Poetry Club (NYC) in 2009 to explore intersections between mathematics, art and the poetic response. The documentary film is a fast paced of journey through the critical themes of these nine exhibitions featuring over 40 artists, 35 poets, dancers, musicians, high school students, grad students, connected together with music, animation and thoughtful reflections. Participants range from Antiochian and former U.S Poet Laureate Mark Strand, to Karen Finley, DJ Spooky, Dread Scott, Bob Holman, Kristin Prevallet and Taylor Meade.

Admission is free.

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.
