(5/25) Pisano’s new commission considers the notion of ‘ethnomathematics’ with works that examine the cultural construct of mathematical practice. The exhibition includes a series of sculptures, diagrams and text pieces that approach issues such as exchange, measurement, design, navigation and calculation, and how methods and applications of these notions vary in different contexts. Pisano’s research-based practice looks at how, where, and through what processes an art object is realized and generates meaning. Her diagrammatic works expose a loop, in which shifting abstract sculptural forms are conceived directly in relation to written and spoken language, implying an ongoing and morphing production of meaning.
Through the notion of multiple mathematics, the exhibition asks questions surrounding the relationship between universal and particular; curricular versus cultural responsibility in education; and globalism and pluralism through the lens of logic, scientific research and abstraction–all of which are also pertinent issues in contemporary art. Mainly composed of wood, metal and fabric, the sculptural pieces in The value of mathematics reference objects such as a weaving frame, a transaction counter, a map, and several display tables. Varying in scale, the pieces refer to issues such as “negotiations in exchange,” “learning in proximity,” “reading the world with mathematics,” among others.

The exhibition explores the GRAMMY-nominated artist’s songwriting talent and celebrates Shakur’s legacy as a magnetic performer, charismatic actor, heartfelt poet and outspoken social activist.
“Tupac Shakur was one of the most original and important of all hip hop artists. His writings are both powerful and provocative,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum. “It is an honor to be the first music museum to acknowledge Tupac's legacy and to bring context to what was an incredible career."
All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur showcases the rapper’s love of words and his talent as a gifted communicator through handwritten lyrics and poems. The exhibit also features artifacts from his career breakthrough with hip-hop group, Digital Underground and his rise to fame as a solo artist.
