“SECOND SUNDAYS” PROGRAM FOR MARCH 2014: NOGUCHI’S SEARCH FOR STYLE
For The Noguchi Museum’s “Second Sundays” program in March, Brett Littman, Executive Director at The Drawing Center, and Dakin Hart, Senior Curator at The Noguchi Museum, will discuss how and why drawing is fundamental to establishing the faculty Michelangelo called disegno (design): the ability to coordinate the hand, the eye, and the brain in service of the artistic imagination. Reviewing the drawings in the Museum’s current special exhibition Noguchi’s Early Drawings: 1927–1932, Mr. Littman and Mr. Hart will evaluate how Noguchi’s serial imitations of canonical Modernist approaches to abstracting the human figure helped him develop the values and strategies that became his style.
