Painting By Numbers: Scenes from the awkward love affair of art and mathematics

Art and Mathematics seem to belong to the warring houses of science and culture, but they've always flirted with each other. Some of their meetings yield spectacular success; others are filled with embarrassing misunderstandings.

Is maths itself an art form?

Does number hold the secret to artistic beauty?

Do mathematicians only need artists for public engagement - and do artists only need maths for calculations?

Can specialists in one field ever really understand the other?

Refreshments available from 18.15 for 18.30 start. See you there!
