On Becoming an Artist: Isamu Noguchi and His Contemporaries, 1922-1960
Start Date 17/11/2010
End Date 24/04/2011
Location Long Island City 
Country United States 
Description This fall, The Noguchi Museum marks its twenty-fifth anniversary with an important exhibition that explores the relationship between Isamu Noguchi (1904-88) and some 40 figures from the worlds of art, architecture, design, and theatre.

On view from November 17, 2010, through April 24, 2011, On Becoming an Artist: Isamu Noguchi and His Contemporaries, 1922-1960 will integrate artworks and documentary materials to examine Noguchi's relationships with figures such as artists Constantin Brancusi, Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, and Frida Kahlo; designer and inventor Buckminster Fuller; architects including Gordon Bunshaft, Louis Kahn, and Richard Neutra; and dancers and choreographers Martha Graham, Erick Hawkins, and Merce Cunningham, among many others both famous and less well-known. In so doing, it will provide a singular portrait of the art world at critical points during the twentieth century.

On Becoming an Artist has been organised for The Noguchi Museum by independent curator Amy Wolf in coordination with Museum Curator Bonnie Rychlak. Exhibition design is by South Side Design & Building.
