Making math FUN



On temporary exhibition

Sculpture: the work of Hans Noë

Hans Noë is a 95-year-old Holocaust survivor who may not be so much a hidden master as a hiding one.  Over the past several decades, he has been compiling a remarkable body of mathematically flecked, geometrically confounding sculptural work in virtually complete secret.  Hans was born in 1928 in Czernowitz, a town of 250,000 in Eastern Europe which saw most of its population of 140,000 Jews perish.  After many harrowing years of subterfuge and hiding, often in plain sight, he arrived in NYC where he became a protégé of and assistant to Tony Smith, the eminent sculptor and architect.  Though he had some success thereafter building homes for artists in the Hamptons during the fifties and early sixties, the deeply ingrained habit of never calling attention to himself worked somewhat against his success as an architect.  After retiring, Hans built an exquisite house of his own up north along the Hudson River and started generating a singular collection of sculptures and maquettes.  This show, curated by the veteran arts writer Lawrence Weschler, is the first time he is sharing this work with the public.  MoMath wishes to thank David de Weese for his generosity in sponsoring this show.

Open daily. Sculpture: the work of Hans Noë is open to the general public for viewing during MoMath’s open hours, daily from 10 am to 5 pm.  Visiting Composite, the gallery at MoMath, is free with Museum general admission or membership.  Purchase tickets at or become a member at

Meet the artist! The artist Hans Noë will be making a special guest appearance at MoMath on Tuesday, October 17, at 6:00 pm.  Please join Hans Noë in conversation with Lawrence Weschler, Chaim Goodman-Strauss, Alva Noë, and others, by registering at

Groundbreaking Discoveries in Mathematics

Learn about the amazing discovery of the “einstein tile” known as the Hat and its close relative, the Spectre, a “chiral” aperiodic monotile. Both are the first-ever shapes that can tile the plane endlessly but only without ever quite repeating the pattern, discovered by math enthusiasts and researchers David Smith, Joseph Samuel Myers, Craig Kaplan, and MoMath’s very own Chaim Goodman-Strauss.  Read about these shapes and hear the stories behind each discovery!  Visit and for articles, videos, and even a creative art competition inspired by these discoveries!
