Mattatuck Museum announces Stitches in Time and Space: Gail Rothschild and Daina Taimina

The Mattatuck Museum presents Stitches in Time and Space: Gail Rothschild and Daina Taimina an exhibition on view from Sunday, November 24, 2013.

Stitches in Time and Space: Gail Rothschild and Daina Taimina, joins textiles, math and history. Artist Gail Rothschild charts the craftsmanship of each woven artifact in her Ancient Linen series, while simultaneously conveying their deterioration in the face of time. Cornell mathematician Daina Taimina marries art and science with crocheted sculptures of hyperbolic planes. Her work explores the 3-D world from a fourth dimension vantage point. Seen together these works demonstrate the ability of art to reveal variations found in the scientific experience of time and space.
