Guest curator Amy Wolf will discuss the women artists who befriended, collaborated and supported Noguchi early in his career.  Wolf will highlight the accomplishments of Marion Greenwood, Frida Kahlo, Ruth Page and Yuriko, widely admired in their time as a mural artist, a painter of self-portraits and a dancers/choreographers, respectively.  While these women were important to Noguchi personally, they also provided models of independence and ambition seeking out opportunities for themselves and their work in the early 20th century.
