This exhibition explores the impact of groundbreaking scientific discoveries on American and European artists in the 20th century. Hungarian poet Charles Sirató’s 1936 “Dimensionist Manifesto” declared that artists should strive to respond to the scientific revolutions going on around them. Artists in dialogue with Dimensionism explored these revolutions in their practice, engaging with physics, astronomy, and microbiology. The show brings together works by those who either signed or drew inspiration from the Dimensionist Manifesto, including such artists as Alexander Calder (1898–1976), Joseph Cornell (1903–1972), Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968), Helen Lundeberg (1908–1999), Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), and Man Ray (1890–1976).
This exhibition will travel next to the Mead Art Museum (March 28–July 28, 2019). For more information, please visit:
