Archives Deep Dive: Noguchi’s Bollingen Journey, 1949-50
Matthew Kirsch, Curator of Research and Digital Content, will present Isamu Noguchi’s photographs from his travels throughout Europe and Asia in 1949–50. Funded by a travel grant by the Bollingen Foundation, Noguchi set out “to investigate the conditions and the extent to which art had been employed to create the environment of leisure in the past and in the present,” researching sites including megalithic ruins at Carnac in Brittany, the Campidoglio in Rome, the Jantar Mantar astronomical observatories at Delhi and Jaipur, the Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia, and more.
