The Isaac Newton Institute is proud to announce that this autumn we will be hosting the public exhibition “Form in Art: Art of Form”.
This international display of 14 separate artworks will explore the boundaries and relationship between form and mathematics and will run from Wednesday 22 November to Friday 15 December 2017. During that period visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the artworks themselves, attend an initial launch event and meet the artists for an afternoon of talks and interactions. Those whose work will be on display will include Nigel Hall RA, Ulyana Gumeniuk, Peter Randall-Page RA and Mella Shaw (a full list can be find on the flyer pictured below).
The exhibition’s central event – an artists’ session and reception – will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 29 November. The full schedule is pictured in the gallery below and available to view online here.
The exhibition and its constituent events are being hosted at INI as part of the Growth Form and Self-Organisation programme, and more specifically as part of the Form in Art, Toys and Games workshop. The latter has been organised Andrzej Herczyński (Boston College, Massachusetts) and Roberto Zenit (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México). Their aim, from the scientific point of view, is to identify general ideas on the emergence of form in art and in the artistic process. Participation by artists will enrich and broaden the scope of the workshop, and will make it more relevant to both the art and the science communities.
We look forward to welcoming art-lovers and mathematicians alike to INI over the coming weeks.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
