The exhibition of Physics on the Fringe at the Institute For Figuring in Los Angeles has been beautifully reviewed in the Los Angeles Times  by art critic Holly Myers. Her piece ends with the lovely sentiment as follows:

 "Wertheim points to the recent embrace of “outsider art” as a model for how the scientific community might come to appreciate the conceptual integrity of these alternative theories, recognizing their sociological implications without necessarily endorsing their merit.Those of us in the art world, however, might also take it the other way, recognizing in the alienated urgency of these outsider physicists some echo of what the uninitiated — of whom there are many — long for in art.
