Noguchi Talks: Villa Kujoyama presents Marion Delarue and François-Xavier Richard

Tuesday, November 26, 2019
6 pm–8 pm

Join us for a conversation co-organized with Villa Kujoyama and The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, featuring contemporary jewelry designer Marion Delarue and artist-designer François-Xavier Richard.

Isamu Noguchi’s wide-ranging artistic achievements across sculpture and design were deeply informed by his travels around the world, including important periods working in Paris and Japan. In this spirit, Villa Kujoyama prize winners Marion Delarue and François-Xavier Richard will discuss their ongoing research and experimentation with Japanese craft techniques that informed projects realized during their residency at Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, a renowned artist-in-residence program dedicated to facilitating French and Japanese cross-disciplinary dialogues.

This conversation will be moderated by Noguchi Museum director Brett Littman joined by Villa Kujoyama expert consultant Sumiko Oe-Gottini.
