Artist in Residence Weekend | Ayami Aoyama
In conjunction with the exhibition Hammer, Chisel, Drill: Noguchi’s Studio Practice, The Noguchi Museum will host three Artist-in-Residence Weekends. Each of these artists work with similar tools and materials as Noguchi did and will demonstrate their process. These residencies expand the Museum’s Second Sunday series, featuring demonstrations throughout the day on Saturday from 11:00am to 1:00pm and 3:00pm to 5:00pm, and an artist talk on Sunday at 3:00pm.
Ayami Aoyama will demonstrate splitting stone as she creates an original sculpture. She will discuss the process of using hand tools as well as the differences between Japanese and American tools and approaches to stone carving. For more information on this artist, please visit her website.
