About the Book

Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi is a two-volume archival excavation of Noguchi’s enduring relationship with Greece, a country he regularly visited for decades, through the lens of the Greece- and New York-based studio Objects of Common Interest. It considers the influence of Greek culture on Noguchi’s work, and the metamorphosing identity he established from engaging with multiple cultures, diverse practitioners, and a variety of mediums. It features letters, photographs, sketches, and words from the artist himself—some never seen before now—and new texts provided by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, Hsiao-Yun Chu, Dakin Hart, Katerina Koskina, Dr. Nicholas Paissios, and Jannis Varelas.

This project extends a dialogue between Objects of Common Interest and Noguchi which began with the exhibition Objects of Common Interest: Hard, Soft, and All Lit Up with Nowhere to Go, on view at the Museum from September 15, 2021 to February 13, 2022.

The standard paperback edition, as well as a hardback Collector’s edition, which includes two archival pigment prints, will be available for purchase and signing in the Museum Shop.
