"A Gift of Knowing: The Art of Dorothea Rockburne"
March 14 – April 26, 2015

Bowdoin College Museum of Art

Dorothea Rockburne grounds her practice in mathematical theories that she first encountered while studying with Max Dehn at the legendary Black Mountain College. This exhibition includes a selection of key works since the 1970s, featuring one of Rockburne’s most recent drawings, The Mathematical Edges of Maine, a response to her travel to the state in the summer of 2014.
