The historic quadrivium comprised four core subjects, or arts, taught in the Renaissance Period. The word is Latin, translating roughly to a “place where four roads meet.” These cores consisted of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy, and were rooted in thinking skills for their theoretical applications. The quadrivium may be considered to be the study of number and its relationship to physical space or time: arithmetic was pure number, geometry was number in space, music number in time, and astronomy number in space and time.
In CES Contemporary’s Quadrivium, this classical education is represented in the works of Lola Dupré, Shusuke Ao, Jordan Clark, Gordon Magnin, Robert Larson, Val Britton, Irina & Silviu Szekely, and Justin Angelos. This group elucidates the core disciplines with clarity of vision.
