Part of the international Pint of Science festival, Creative Reactions features collaborative art inspired by ongoing research.

The School of Mathematics was awarded an £15,000 EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account grant to fund participants taking part in this year’s exhibition.

Together with local artists, our staff have created a number of thought-provoking pieces that showcase the breadth of exciting research taking place in our department.

Their completed artworks include paintings, prints and dynamic installation pieces, inspired by work encompassing the full gamut of pure and applied mathematics, including algebraic geometry, dynamical systems and fluid mechanics.

The exhibition is free and opens with an evening viewing event at 6:30 pm on 2 May in the North Art Gallery, Southville, where it resides until moving to the to the Island, City Centre, on 20 May. It is open between 9am-5pm (Mon-Sat) and 10am-4pm (Sun) until 1 June.
