Looking Up: The Skyviewing Sculptures of Isamu Noguchi
This symposium brings together scholars of modern and contemporary art to explore the importance of skyviewing in Noguchi’s oeuvre, and the convergence of his interest in outer space with ancient culture and contemporary art. Skyviewing was an important theme in Noguchi’s work throughout his long artistic career, but this is the first time that the widely divergent forms the theme took are explored in depth. The speakers will address Noguchi’s art from different angles and participate in discussions with both academic and general audience.
The symposium is organized in conjunction with an exhibition with the same name at the Western Gallery, curated by Dakin Hart, the Senior Curator of the Noguchi Museum in New York, and a publication by D Giles Ltd. of a richly illustrated 128-page hardcover book on the topic.
The symposium will take place on Oct. 22, 2022 at 10:00am in the Western Gallery. For more information and to register, please visit the symposium website.
