In addition,  The Phillips Collection, is mounting a special exhibit, “Man Ray – Human Equations: A Journey from Mathematics to Shakespeare.” This exhibit contains mathematical models from the Institute Henri Poincaré in Paris, alongside photographs of these models by Man Ray from the 1930s, and his paintings inspired by the models in the 1940s. On Saturday afternoon we will be touring this exhibit, as well as a related exhibit by contemporary Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. Peggy Kidwell, Curator of Mathematics at the Smithsonian Institution, will be giving a talk at our meeting on Saturday morning related to the Phillips exhibits.
