In a collaborative program between The Noguchi Museum and Socrates Sculpture Park, artist Leah Raintree discusses her photographic series Another Land, a body of work that takes as its point of departure a 1968 sculpture of the same name by Isamu Noguchi. During the summer of 2015, Raintree responded to Noguchi's sculptural works in stone with a site-specific installation at Socrates Sculpture Park, followed by a series of photographs in reaction to the Museum's collection, treating Noguchi works as distant celestial objects.

'Erratic' is a geological term of art for boulders carried and deposited by glaciers--in manners and places so surprising as to have helped give rise to science itself. Kay Ryan's erratic facts, it may follow, are not stray pieces of trivia but displaced chunks of reality: momentous mysteries, with a rock-like solidity, capable of inspiring a sublimely productive wonder.

 

Kay Ryan is a former United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner who lives and writes in Northern California.

Speaking as one American representative at the Venice Biennale for another (Noguchi: 1986; Wilson: 2003), Fred Wilson offers thoughts on the art and design, cross-discipline and cross-cultural practice of the artist. Noguchi's art and life served as a beacon for Wilson early in his career, providing a guiding insight into a path not quite like any other.
