Renegade scientist James Carter published a zine in 1970 called Gravity Does Not Exist, and he meant it — Newton had been wrong. Carter has spent the rest of his career developing and promoting a theory to explain the structure of matter. His ideas, which Bill Clinton thanked him for sharing in notes from the '90s, are among those featured in the Institute for Figuring's debut show, “Physics on the Fringe.” There also are shelves of binders containing other theories from outsider physicists who continue to appear at the Chinatown space to drop off their life's work. 990 N. Hill St., Chinatown; through Oct. 14. (323) 222-2111,

Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 14. Continues through Oct. 14, 2012
