Exciting talk coming up at the Hayward Gallery, London

There’s an exciting talk coming up at the Hayward Gallery in June: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/george-widener-77290

On 12th June at 7:45pm ‘A conversation with George Widener’ is happening, book tickets on the website or in person for £8. Widener employs a rich mix of numbers, calendars, numerology, historical data, population statistics and mathematical calculations in his art. In his clearly structured drawings he combines real historical events, such as the sinking of the Titanic, with his own calculations, analysing both world events and his own biography and developing specific codes for the super-intelligent computer of the future.

George Widener is in conversation with Alex Bellos, journalist and award-winning author of Alex’s Adventures in Numberland.
