MC Escher: Amazing Images

How did MC Escher come to produce images that continue to amaze and delight both artists and scientists over a century later? And what can his work teach us today?

Enjoy an exploration of the interface between art, mathematics, and vision science through the lens of Escher's life and career by Escher scholar Jeffrey Price, joined in conversation by Professor Pawan Sinha of MIT's Department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences.

The event will feature a display of original Escher prints from Price's collection, and a guided looking activity led by Seth Riskin, Director of the MIT Museum Studio and Compton Gallery, and Kartik Chandra, PhD student at MIT CSAIL.
