DESCRIPTION

See the museum’s collection through the lens of a scientist. In "Material Beauty," guest curator Nathan Newman, a professor in Solid State Science at Arizona State University’s School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, has selected artworks that engage with the chemistry of color, the neurology of facial recognition and the mathematics of perspective. This exhibition is part of ASU Art Museum’s Encounter series, which invites artists and scholars to curate exhibitions of work from the museum’s collection.

Supported by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund.
