“Everything is Sculpture” | Isamu Noguchi in New York

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 - 6:30pm

This event takes place at the Museum of the City of New York.

 

Join Isamu Noguchi scholar Deborah Goldberg and Senior Curator Dakin Hart of The Noguchi Museum in Long Island City (opened by the artist in 1985) to explore the career of this legendary New York-based artist and designer. Focusing on his work in New York City, they will discuss realized and unrealized projects, including his playground designs, his "Sunken Garden" for Chase Manhattan Plaza, and his iconic public sculpture “Red Cube” at 140 Broadway. Noguchi’s furniture and lamps are still in production today and he was also an active designer for the stage, working with Martha Graham, George Balanchine, and John Cage.

 

Co-sponsored with the Museum of the City of New York. Tickets are required for this event, but are free of charge for members of The Noguchi Museum. To obtain a ticket, visit the MCNY website here.
