Escher exhibit in Industry City feature unique, ‘impossible’ construction
An incredibly popular art exhibit in Industry City, extended through March 31.

The exhibit features a blend of art, math and science exemplifying the work of M.C. Escher, a Dutch artist who died in 1972 at the age of 73.
He is most famous for his so-called impossible constructions, that challenge our assumptions.
Exhibit manger Johanna Guttmann says it’s not your typical art exhibition.

She says 200 of his works are on display and all of them push the boundaries of what's possible.
Guttmann says a trip to Spain marked a pivotal point in the artist's career, when he became fascinated with patterns.

“But on top of that, we also have a lot of immersive elements that just make it so much for fun,” says Guttmann.

Guttman suggests to come with an open mind, and be prepared for your eyes to play tricks on you.
