Join a curator and a historian for a closer look at the intersection of mathematics and art in this exhibition.

This gallery tour allows visitors to explore the new exhibition Picturing Math: Selections from the Department of Drawings and Prints. The visualization of mathematics has taken many forms since the advent of printing. Animated by tensions between the abstract and the figural, the geometric and the gestural, these works from The Met collection show how artists from the 15th century to contemporary times have engaged in the creation and communication of mathematical knowledge through the use and production of images. To learn more about the exhibition and view selected images, visit the Met’s website.

Open to the public. Assistive listening devices available.
