Brett Littman and Miwako Tezuka
on Arakawa and Isamu Noguchi

With their expansively imaginative works, New York–based artists of Japanese descent Arakawa and Isamu Noguchi both pushed artistic, conceptual, and ideological limits throughout their lives, probing the line between art and design as well as borders within cultural identities. Brett Littman, director of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, will be in conversation with Miwako Tezuka, consulting curator of Arakawa and Madeline Gins’s Reversible Destiny Foundation, to discuss the kinship between these artists in terms of their genre-defying interests and activities. The event is free and open to the public.
