Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi examines the relationship between one of the 20th century's most celebrated artists, Isamu Noguchi (1904-88), and the Mediterranean country he regularly visited for decades through the lens of Objects of Common Interest (OoCI). This two-volume set considers the influence of Greek culture on Noguchi's work, and the metamorphosing identity he established from engaging with multiple cultures, diverse practitioners and a variety of mediums. Letters, photographs, sketches and words from the artist himself--some never seen before now--reveal the intimate relationship Noguchi had with Greece. New writings explore the Japanese American interdisciplinarian's creative community, including futurist Buckminster Fuller and choreographer Martha Graham; while contemporary visual essays reinterpret Noguchi's enduring legacy across today's design and art practices.
