Edited by Ananda Pellerin, Objects of Common Interest. Introduction by Objects of Common Interest. Text by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, Hsiao-Yun Chu, Dakin Hart, Isamu Noguchi, Nicolas Paissios, Jannis Varelas.
Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi explores the relationship between one of the 20th centuryís most celebrated art and design multidisciplinarians and the Mediterranean country he visited regularly for decades. Through an engaging visual essay of letters, photographs, sketches and words from the artist himself, new light is shed on the intimate relationship Noguchi had with Greeceís creative community, history, myths and material culture. With this engagingly designed two-volume box set, readers will discover Noguchi's long-held fascination with Greece and how his legacy lives on in the country.
Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi explores the enduring influence of Greek art, design and evolving cultural identity on Noguchiís internationalist perspective. New essays delve into Noguchiís fertile collaborations with dancers and choreographers inspired by Greece, including innovative American choreographer Martha Graham, and the gradual development of Noguchiís truly interdisciplinary practice. A portrait of Noguchi, already a consummate traveler before he first embarked on his explorations of Greece, is provided by a meditation on his transformative relationship with maverick architect Buckminster Fuller, who saw Noguchi for the person-of-the-world that he was.
This collaborative publication includes Noguchiís Greece-centered works across sculpture, design and architecture, alongside a series of responsive texts and artworks by contemporary design studio Objects of Common Interest, led by Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, and a series of photographs by current practitioners inspired by Noguchiís interdisciplinary legacy. Noguchi and Greece, Greece and Noguchi is an extension of a research and exhibition project initiated by OoCI with the Noguchi Museum in New York.

Foreword by Jenny Dixon. Text by Amy Wolf.
On Becoming An Artist illuminates the friendships, mentorships and collaborations of Isamu Noguchi (1904Ė1988), in celebration of the artistís experimentations and influences. It opens with an account of Noguchiís earlyguidance at the hands of sculptors Gutzon Borglum, Constatin Brancusi and Onorio Ruotolo, and features such diverse works as his dance sets for Martha Graham (while highlighting his relationships with other choreographers such as Erick Hawkins and Merce Cunningham), collaborations with Buckminster Fuller, Florence Knoll and George Nelson, and his friendships with artists such as David Hare and Arshile Gorky, and others. The book concludes with Noguchiís 1950s public projects, including his work with Marcel Breuer and Gordon Bunshaft, and his later unrealized project with Louis Kahn.
