THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF MATHEMATICS – PANTEA KARIMI – MERCURY TWENTY GALLERY

September 11 - October 17

Free

The Mercury Twenty solo exhibition, The Unbearable Lightness of Mathematics, by Pantea Karimi is a personal story of a restrictive educational system, in the late 80s in Iran, that did not leave much room for focused-learning or personal explorations. Unbearably "light" for the "heavy" environment in which it was taught, mathematics is both the agonizing and the celebrated protagonist in this exhibition.

Exhibition Dates: Sep 11 to Oct. 17, 2020.

Gallery hrs & days: Fri & Sat. 12:00-6:00 PM
