Description
View toward the south wall of the Shaw Ruddock Gallery on the upper level of the Walker Art Building during a Gallery Conversation held on April 21, 2015 and given by the artist Dorothea Rockburne (left) and Dave Peifer (right), chair and professor of mathematics at the University of North Carolina-Asheville. Entitled "Art, Mathematics, and the Legacy of Black Mountain College," their remarks were presented in conjunction with the exhibition "A Gift of Knowing: The Art of Dorothea Rockburne," which was shown in both the Shaw Ruddock Gallery and part of the Becker Gallery from March 12, 2015 through April 26, 2015. During the Gallery Conversation the two speakers discussed how Rockburne's art reflects the interdisciplinary education provided by the legendary Black Mountain College, where she studied with the theoretical mathematician Max Dehn (1878-1952). On April 20, 2015 Ms. Rockburne presented the 2015 Santagata Lecture, "Materializing Mathematical Concepts into Visual Art." The Santagata Memorial Lecture Fund was established in 1982 in honor of Kenneth V. Santagata '73 by his family and friends.
