Isamu Noguchi, born to a Japanese father and American mother in 1904, struggled with self-identity and his dual heritage, which he transformed into statues, gardens and furniture. Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Hayden Herrera discusses Listening to Stone: The Art and Life of Isamu Noguchi, her new major biography of one of America's most iconic sculptors. Moderating the discussion is acclaimed art critic and author Irving Sandler, who is a contributing editor at Art in America
Noguchi traveled ceaselessly around the world for inspiration, creating unique works and projects that formed a powerful link between East and West, including the Noguchi Museum in Queens. Through Noguchi's hallmark massive sculptures of interlocking wood, Zen-like gardens of granite and stone slides, along with his personal relationships, Herrera reveals an intense and elusive artist who mixed a subtle playfulness into his work and life. 

Followed by a reception.
