Archives Deep Dive: Léonie Gilmour, A Fiercely Independent Life
Lisa Yin Zhang, former Curatorial Intern, will present new research on the life, work, and intellectual world of writer and translator Léonie Gilmour (1874–1933), Isamu Noguchi’s mother. Drawing on recently digitized archival sources, including correspondence and unpublished manuscripts, Zhang will offer a portrait of the fiercely independent life of Leonie while tracing the profound influence she had on her son.

The lecture will last approximately 30 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and comments.

Advanced registration is required, but there is no limit on audience size.

Lisa Yin Zhang is an artist, art historian, and writer from Queens, New York. A graduate of Williams College, Lisa was a curatorial intern at the Noguchi Museum from January to April 2020, and has held positions at the Museum of Chinese in America, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum.
