Lisa Yin Zhang, former Curatorial Intern, will present new research on the life, work, and intellectual world of writer and translator Léonie Gilmour (1873–1933), Isamu Noguchi’s mother. Drawing on recently digitized archival sources, including correspondence and unpublished manuscripts, Zhang will offer a portrait of the fiercely independent life of Gilmour while tracing the profound influence she had on her son.
The lecture will last approximately 30 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and comments. Live closed captioning is provided. Program times listed are EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). Please send any questions to email@example.com.
