CAMBRIDGE, UK.- Kettle’s Yard will present Beyond Measure: conversations across art and science, on view 5 April – 1 June 2008. Beyond Measure: conversations across art and science is an exhibition that explores how geometry is used by artists, astronomers, engineers, surgeons, architects, physicists and mathematicians - among many others - to interpret, explain and order the world around us.

The exhibition draws parallels between the artist’s studio, the laboratory and the study as equivalent places for thinking, imagining and creating. Materials and objects from the worlds of astronomy, mathematics, engineering, plastic surgery and architecture will be shown together with key works of contemporary and modern historical art – interactive computer models alongside Sir Christopher Wren’s dividers.

The exhibition explores historical and avant-garde aspects of geometry, from its beginnings on the banks of the Nile to its use in exploring multi-dimensional space. When Einstein published his non-Euclidean general theory of relativity in 1915, it was arguably as important for artists as it was for science, and the fourth dimension became a key theme in Cubist, Futurist and Vorticist art.

Contributors include mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, Astronomer and Professor of Experimental Philosophy Gerry Gilmore, and Nobel prize-winning Molecular Biologist/Biophysicist Aaron Klug, and architects Eric Parry and Shoji Sadao. Artists include American minimalist Robert Morris, British sculptor Richard Deacon and German sound artist Carsten Nicolai.

Beyond Measure: conversations across art and science will offer many different ways of engaging with geometry and with the world we live in. It is organised by Barry Phipps, Kettle’s Yard’s first Interdisciplinary Fellow. It follows on from his earlier Kettle’s Yard exhibition, Lines of Enquiry, which looked at drawing across the disciplines.
