Society & Culture:History
In this episode of The Gotham Center podcast “Sites and Sounds,” Olga Sooudi talks about the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, designed and created by the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Sooudi, an anthropologist at the University of Amsterdam, is the author of Japanese New York, an intimate, ethnographic portrait of Japanese creative migrants living and working in New York City. Here, she uses the example of Isamu Noguchi to discuss the larger community of Japanese artists who made NYC home to one of the largest overseas Japanese populations in the world.
