Noguchi Talks | Robert Stadler and Dakin Hart: Solid Doubts

Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Join Robert Stadler and the Noguchi Museum’s Senior Curator, Dakin Hart, on a walkthrough of the exhibition Solid Doubts: Robert Stadler at The Noguchi Museum, to investigate and expose the conventional boundaries between art and design. Free with Museum admission; advance registration is not required.


Like Noguchi, Paris-based, Austrian designer Robert Stadler (b. 1966) is a category-defying artist whose work comes from a place where conceptual, aesthetic, functional, and material considerations meet. Solid Doubts presents Noguchi’s and Stadler's work together in four distinct installations to raise questions about the categorization of functional objects.
