Alex Ross, Managing Editor, The Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné, presents a talk on recent research into Isamu Noguchi’s designs for the New York World’s Fair of 1939. While Noguchi’s iconic Chassis Fountain for the Ford Exposition is the most well-known project he completed for the Fair, this discussion will also explore his unrealized proposals and several recently identified proposed designs, including sculpture for a model community center and for the United States Federal Building.

The lecture will last approximately 45 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and comments. Live closed captioning is provided.
